Made with 100% Korean Chili Peppers
[Chilkab Nongsan] 100% Korea-Grown Gochugaru
Chilkab Nongsan's Gochugaru is made using only 100% Korea-Grown Red Chili Peppers.
The chili peppers are grown in the countryside of Sunchang (located in North Jeolla province). Sunchang receives an abundance of sunshine throughout the year, which is ideal for farming chili peppers.
Scroll through the customer photos of this gochugaru (towards the bottom of page) and you'll see that it's ground medium-coarse.
With a deep & vibrant red color.
But how spicy is it?
It's a medium level spice - perfect for Korean homecooking recipes (including Kimchi).
Chilkab Nongsan takes pride in their clean & safe production facilities. They have received HAACP certification and the chili flakes are thoroughly inspected for quality and taste.
If you're looking for all-around gochugaru that you can use for any type of Korean recipe (jjim, bokkeum, tang, jjigae, etc), this is a good one!
Available in 250 and 500 grams.
Note: After opening bag, we recommend storing gochugaru in the freezer for longer keeping.
I've been making kimchi for at least ten years, but it's only in the last year or so that I've been able to get hold of Korean-grown gochugaru in the UK, and now I'm working through the different brands – when they're not sold out, that is. But finding this site means I've got a steady supply at last. (And the shipping doesn't break the bank!)
This gochugaru is slightly hotter than the last one I used, but it's very fresh and fruity, and leaves a pleasant warmth in the mouth. It's taken me a while to get around to the review because I've been waiting for my current batch of kimchi – the first I've made with this brand – to ripen to the level I like. I normally make mak kimchi because it's easier for me to store, but to give this gochugaru the respect it deserves, I actually left the cabbages halved this time and it really improved the taste and mouthfeel. (And the fermentation was much more vigorous, altrhough I'm not sure if that's connected.)
If you're looking at the price and thinking "That's a lot of money for chilli powder... ," I can assure you it's worth it. You'll be surprised how much difference real Korean gochugaru makes – the flavour is much more complex and savoury. I was dubious at first, but I won't go back to the cheaper stuff now. I love kimchi, and I eat a lot of it, but it was always with other food; since I've been using the "real deal" (and Korean salt) I've been enjoying it as a snack on its own for the first time because the flavour's so good. Treat yourself to a bag of this gochugaru – you won't regret it.
This was the right amount of heat. It wasn't as spicy as i thought it would be. There is a slight tingle on the tongue. The flavor is excellent unlike so of the mass produce pepper flakes out there, they taste like nothing. Great product♥️.
Love the super high quality! The scent is ADICTIVE😋 The taste SUPERIOR 🍷
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!
I just made a container of Kim chee, also used some in spicy Korean stir fried pork; I love how bright red the color is when it is fresh; I have some that has turned a dark red which doesn‚Äôt look so appetizing; I visited Seoul for 3 weeks and just love the food, so I‚Äôm happy that I can order directly from Korea, than you for your service& congratulations on your engagement to Katie
