[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.

Must have…

This curated item is just the umami bomb.

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
