Crunchy, crisp radish in sweet, tart pickling juice is very easy to make. The cubes are always served with KFC (Korean Fried Chicken), thus the name Chikin (Chicken) Mu. The slices are often used as wraps and are therefore called Ssam Mu (Ssam = Wrap in Korean).
Swedes will go to almost any lengths to get a hold of this delicacy that used to be available only before Lent and served primarily on Shrove Tuesday. These days bakeries start selling them shortly after Christmas because they are so popular. Sweet bread filled with almond paste and whipped cream – what’s not to like?
