In this video I show how to make a refreshing Summertime drink enjoyed by the people of Japan. It is called Aka Shiso (Red Shiso) or Red Perilla juice made from the leaves of the Red Perilla. The leaves I use in this recipes was harvested from our 2022 garden.
Here is a link to Kitazawa Seed Co. they specialize in Japanese/Asian seeds for gardening if you'd like to try and grow some yourself. They seem to grow quite well in the Upper Midwest Zone-4: https://kitazawaseed.com/products/shiso-seeds-perilla-purple
The strained and discarded leaves can be made into a rice seasoning called, Yukari. See this link, which I have also used as a reference: https://www.justonecookbook.com/red-shiso-juice/
