[Haetnim Maeul] 100% Sun-Dried Gochugaru (Great for Kimchi)

Haetnim Maeul Gochugaru is made with 100% Korea-grown red chili peppers.

Koreans prefer domestic-grown gochugaru as many larger Korean food conglomerates import lower-grade peppers from China to keep prices low.

Haetnim Maeul is a regional producer that prides itself in using only Korea-grown peppers.

The chilis are grown in the rural county of Yeongyang (Gyeongsang-do Province). It is a mountainous region located in central Korea that gets an ample amount of sunshine throughout the year.

There, the chili peppers grow firm and plump.

After harvesting, the Korean chili peppers are dried naturally out in the sun (as opposed to being dried in an industrial-scale dehydrator).

Gochugaru that is dried in the sun is labeled "Taeyang Gochugaru".

Taeyang Gochugaru sells at a premium as the chili develops a deeper and spicier flavor when its dried naturally in the sun.

So what does this gochugaru look like?

Take a look at the close-up view.

It has a coarse texture and dark-red color.

Spice level: Medium

This coarse texture is especially great for making Kimchi!

It sticks on to the cabbage leaves and doesn't slip off when coated.

Of course, this gochugaru works great for spicing-up other Korean homecooking recipes as well.

This comes in two sizes: 250g and 500g.

it's the first time I got/ordered Korean Gochugaru - in my area you could only buy Gochugaru made of Chinese Chilis - and there is a huge difference in colour and taste. I have already used it for Sundubu Jjigae - very delicious and won't be the last time I order it :-)

Great product!

I am a Filipino-American in the U.S., and I cook a lot of Korean recipes. I have used this twice so far and have been pleased by the quality of the product. It is much better than the types I buy at my local Korean market. Thank you!

The best for Kimchi!

I always buy this Gochugaru whenever i'm making Kimchi. Even though it's a little pricey, it has a much better flavor than other cheaper products on the market. Perfect spice level as well.
