    I love this recipe! It made excellent spring rice cake too! I used beet for coloring and skipped pine needles. I also used honey and black sesame powder as the filling. They taste great! Thank you!

    I love how she rarely ever wastes food. She's like "don't throw this away. We can eat this." Love you, Maangchi

    I like the way how she teaches Korean recipes to foreigners! She don't modify the recipe! even though it's difficult and unique method or rare ingredients required. :) i think that's why she is popular!

    My grandmother always told us when making Songpyun. You have to make Songpyun pretty to have a pretty daughter. I looked forward to seeing the songpyeon my mom made. My mom's Songpyeon is...It was normal.😄😄😄😄

    If you're making this in the Eastern United States, Eastern white pine (Pinus strobus) has the tastiest needles, and the needles are totally edible and can be used to make tea!

    What a gorgeous recipe! I really wish I can make it someday! In India we make something strikingly similar, it's called 'modak'. These are also steamed rice cakes and the outer rice flour coating is made pretty much the same way as songpyeon, but for the sweet filling, we use coconut, jaggery and cardamom. It is made for an important festival called Ganesh Chaturthi.

    I have an unforgettable memory with 송편. When I was in Korea and it was 추석 holiday, I went to a traditional market to buy 송편. But, because that was my first time buying 송편 and my korean was not so good, I just gave 10.000 Won to the seller and she gave me a plastic bag full of assorted 송편. I ate those 송편 for my lunch and dinner for some days, but I was happy and didn't feel any regrets because the 송편 was so tasty and delicious. Now I have already come back to my hometown, and I always miss 송편 whenever the Mid-Autumn Festival is about to come. 송편 만들기를 가르쳐주셔서 감사드립니다, 망치님. 기회가 된다면 한 번 도전해 볼게요 🙂🙂

    Mangchi we make the same in south india, we call it modak/kolukattai. We fill it with sesame/coconut/chickpeas and add jaggery or brown sugar for sweetness. 🤩 Ah love how much tamil culture is similar to korean! Loads of love from India.
