Enjoy the traditional taste of red pepper paste (gochujang) with an extra kick! Perfect for traditional Korean dishes such as kimchi jjigae, spicy fish stew, or soybean stew. It can also be used to make Korean side dishes by mixing or stir-frying with rice and vegetables.
High-quality traditional gochujang largely depends on the quality and freshness of its natural ingredients. This red pepper paste is made using only the best locally-grown ingredients such as 100% domestic Korean red peppers, glutinous rice flour, red pepper chili powder, salt, and high-quality soy sauce. The red pepper chili powder is pre-picked in the fall season, then stripped off the seeds and finely ground into deep, red powder. The paste is then dipped in glutinous rice flour and soy sauce, giving it that iconic flavor and glossy sheen and texture. The paste is finally sealed in traditional Korean pots for fermentation. The pots have small-lipped openings to prevent foreign materials and excess air from entering and compromising the fermentation process. The process also utilizes a specialized state-of-the-art automated sanitation system from the first to the last process to ensure clean, high-quality products.
