Perfect for 1st-timers
[Chung Jung One] 100% Korean Chili Pepper Gochujang
New to Korean cooking? This is a popular, great-tasting Gochujang that is used in Korea.
To start, Chung Jung One is one of Korea’s largest food companies. They specialize in fermented traditional products like Korean soy sauce, doenjang and gochujang. We chose this product specifically because it’s made with chili peppers that are grown here in Korea. Why is this important? Large food companies (like Chung Jung One) typically import chili peppers from countries like China to keep prices low. Nowadays, Korean consumers are conscientious about the origins of their chili peppers and tend to buy Korea-grown for its taste, spice-level and quality.
The chili peppers used in this Gochujang are grown in Sunchang, which is famous for its piquant chili peppers. The chili paste is then mixed with rice powder and fermented over two cycles in traditional Korean Hangari pots.
