Kisoondo Garlic Gochujang

Regular price $27.00

Garlic has long been used in Korea to help compliment fish or meat dishes, making this gochujang a great pairing to your weekly dinner recipes. In addition, the additional layer of deep flavor the garlic brings makes this gochujang a great replacement for ssamjang.

As one of the three major jangs (fermented sauces), gochujang is a staple in Korean cuisine. This thick, deep red-colored paste is made mainly from Korean chile peppers, rice, fermented soybeans, and salt; it combines funkiness (brought on by the fermentation process), spiciness (from the peppers), and sweetness (from the rice). Minced, 100% locally grown, garlic is added into the blend before the fermentation process starts, ensuring a full incorporation of flavors. Master Ki's jangs stand out for her exclusive use of all natural, Korean-grown ingredients and her family’s traditional production methods passed down over 10 generations. Once the peppers, fermented soybeans, rice grain syrup, aged soy sauce and other ingredients are added in, the gochujang mixture is aged for least six more months, resulting in a delicious sauce full of 'umami' flavor. 

We recommend playing around with gochujang. Though you can eat gochujang on its own, the versatility of this sauce will pleasantly surprise you. Add a little sesame oil for a quick bibimbap sauce; mix in sugar and soy sauce for a delicious marinade; or simply add a spoonful into stews for a deeper flavor.
