The ritual table for worship of Yi Hwang has none of the traditional Korean sweets such as deep-fried sweet rice cookies and fruits preserved in honey that most other families would offer. In his will, Yi Hwang asked that no one offer him cookies deep-fried in oil because he considered them extravagant. In respect for his will, his descendants honor him with a simple, thrifty ritual table.
