[Chung-O] Glutinous Rice Powder
If you want to make homemade Kimchi, you'll need Glutinous Rice Powder.
Mix this Glutinous Rice Powder with water - or broth - to create a sticky paste. Then add a few heaping scoops of gochugaru, garlic to create your own Kimchi paste.
Chung-O is the first producer in Korea to be officially recognized as an Organic Producer. This simply means they grow all of their crops in Korea without any chemical pesticides. It's no surprise that many of their grain products - including this glutinous rice powder - has become the go-to item for health-conscience homecooks. So buy a bag and use it for your next batch of homemade Kimchi.
Note: Besides Kimchi, glutinous rice powder is also used to make Korean rice cakes (Tteok).
I used this as the primary ingredient to make tteokbokki from scratch. I was very happy to find that it was possible to purchase organic glutinous rice powder - I have never seen it in any Korean grocery store where I live, and the closest one is about 1.5 hours away from me.
I have to admit, when I used this and followed a recipe on the web it did NOT turn out the first time and I ended up wasting about half the bag of rice powder so I was upset. I think it was due to the recipe I used not being descriptive enough as well as my unfamiliarity with making garetteok from scratch. Most recipes say to make your own rice powder or use frozen (both of which contain additional moisture), so if you use this to make garetteok keep in mind you should only add enough boiling water so that the rice powder barely sticks together - however much that is - like adding just enough water so that pie dough just comes together. My second batch (which I halved in case it didn't turn out either) came out well. I made an excellent batch of tteokbokki using the tteok, the Haetnim Maeul gochugaru and the Kisoondo Strawberry gochujang. It was very lightly sweet, deliciously spicy and savory. The rice cakes were tender and pleasantly chewy.
I also make kimchi from scratch, so the next batch I made I will use the rice powder for the paste (our local farmers are still harvesting nappa cabbage so I should be able to make another batch soon).

What can I make with it?
In Korean cuisine, it's typically used to make Kimchi Paste. The glutinous rice powder - when mixed with water or broth - thickens into a glue-like paste. Gochugaru and other aromatics are then added to make Kimchi paste. It's also used to make a variety of Korean rice cakes (Tteok). Finally, you can also use it to make Tangsuyuk (Korean Sweet & Sour Pork). When fried, it turns the skin extra crispy and slightly sticky.
