Chilkab Nongsan - Gochugaru

Made with 100% Korean Chili Peppers

[Chilkab Nongsan] 100% Korea-Grown Gochugaru

Chilkab Nongsan's Gochugaru is made from 100% Korea-grown red chili peppers.

The chili peppers are grown in the countryside of Sunchang (located in North Jeolla province). There, the sun shines bright for many months and the聽climate聽is ideal for growing peppers and other vegetables. It's聽home to Korea's largest聽food manufacturers and many chili pepper growers.聽

Take a look and you'll see that聽Chilkab's gochugaru is finely ground (as opposed to coarsely ground which is used聽for Kimchi making). The flakes have a slightly dark聽red color. This gochugaru is perfect for use in聽seasoning marinades or Korean soups and stews.

So how spicy is it? It has a medium-level spice - which is great for everyday homecooking.

Finally, Chilkab Nongsan takes pride in their high-quality production facilities and equipment. They have received HAACP certification and the peppers are thoroughly inspected vetted and cleaned for quality and taste.

If you're looking for a well-balanced Korea-grown gochugaru that you can use for homecooking, this is it!

Making Kimchi in Spain

I can get all the ingredient in this country EXCEPT the gochugaru. Nothing else can replace that flavor to make homemade kimchi. Very easy to order, shipment to a local address in Spain was easy and fast. Made kimchi the day after it arrived and now I'm a happy happy man. With this gochugaru I can also make pancakes, soups, and pickled radish. My only regret is that I didn't buy the bigger bag!

          What is Gochugaru?


          Gochugaru is made by drying-out and crushing Korean red chili peppers (Taeyang Chili Peppers). Gochugaru has a multi-layered flavor profile: it's spicy, sweet and slightly smoky. It's a unique flavor that's essential to Korean cooking. 
          So how spicy is it? The spice level varies by producer, but it's usually between 4000-8000 Scoville units (similar heat level to a Jalapeno Pepper).
