[Mcgguroom] Mac Signature Doenjang

[Mcgguroom] Mac Signature Doenjang

Artisan-Made, Extra-Rich & Pungent

[Mcgguroom] Mac Signature Doenjang

Today, we introduce Mac Doenjang.

This artisan doenjang has a very rich, pungent taste - much stronger than other artisan doenjang.

Typically, the longer the paste ferments, the richer and deeper the flavor becomes…

Most artisan doenjang undergo 6-12 months of natural fermentation.

However Mac Doenjang ferments for 16 months!

Furthermore, at the 12-month mark, a layer of aged meju (mashed soybeans) - from an older batch - is added to the already fermenting meju.

The combination of slow-fermentation and aged-meju gives this doenjang its high-level of pungency and umami.

In Korean, that pungent-funky-umami flavor is called goo-soo-han-mat “구수한맛”.

And Mac Doenjang ranks the top.

(We should also mention that the Province of Gyeonsanbukdo awarded Mac Doenjang with a score of 5/5 stars in their top doenjang rankings)

Is this made with all-natural ingredients?

Yes. Mac Doenjang is made with only two ingredients: Soybeans (96%) and Sea Salt (4%).

If you’re interested, we offer a small 250g jar.

If you love it, come back for the regular 500g jar.

Excellent Doenjang

Having been introduced to Korean cuisine in a relatively short period of time,I can’t claim to be super knowledgeable about Korean food, but I’m slowly learning, and one of the things I’ve learned is that Mac Signature Doenjang adds a tsunami of umami to one’s cooking!

Uniquely richly-scented doenjang

A product like this is where I realize how different doenjang can be from the average commerically prepared products, and also the variation that fermentation can produce. Smells amazing, tastes great, a great purchase overall.

Hey Daniel,this doenjang paste is really good.I was just wondering; sometime ago I stumbled over a video where you introduced this paste and how to measure it, as the flavour is richer than normal doenjang pastes. I can't see to find it. Can you help me?thanks a lot!cheers
