Gangjeong (강정,羗釘/強情), Gyeonbyeong (견병,繭餠) is a Korean traditional confectionery (hangwa), popular with women as a low calorie snack. A mixture of glutinous rice, honey and malt is boiled, after which a puffed cereal is mixed in. The mixture is scraped out onto a wooden board with sides and rolled flat with a rolling pin. It is cut into various sizes. Other ingredients such as roasted peanut halves, pine nuts, raisins, or sesame seeds may be added; one variety has black sesame seeds instead of puffed cereal. Gangjeong is often served during important events such as weddings, ancestral rites, and lunar new year days (Seollal).[1]
