Korean Text from Eumshik Dimibang Ju Hea (an updated version of the original text)


삼해주(三亥酒) 스무 말 빚기 정월 첫 해일(亥日)에 멥쌀 서 말을 깨끗이 씻어 가루를 낸다. (그것을) 끓인 물 아홉 사발로 죽을 만들어라. (죽이) 다 식거든 좋은 누룩 일곱 되, 밀가루 서 되를 섞어 독에 넣어 두어라.

둘째 해일(亥日)에 멥쌀 너 말을 깨끗이 씻어 가루를 낸다. (그것을) 끓인 물 열두 사발로 죽을 만들어 다 식거든 그 독에 넣어라. 셋째 해일에 멥쌀 열세 말을 깨끗이 씻어 온전히 찌되 매우 무르게 쪄라. 다 식으면 전에 만든 술을 섞어 넣어 두었다가 익거든 쓰라.
