Organic, Produced by K-Food Grandmaster
[Kang Bong Seok] Organic Rice Jocheong Syrup
Today, we offer an organic rice jocheong syrup for your Korean pantry.
Jocheong is Korea's traditional sweetener. It's been used in Korea for centuries - before sugar was brought over to Korea!
It's made from only two ingredients: rice & malt barley.
Jocheong is not as sweet as sugar - but leaves a shiny gloss on foods.
It's typically used in dishes like Tteokbokki, Myeolchi Bokkeum (Stir-Fried Anchovy Banchan), Braised Lotus Roots, Spicy Pork Bulgogi and many others.
(Note: You can use Jocheong as a substitute for Oligodang Syrup, Ssalyeot, Mulyeot or Honey)
This organic syrup is made by Kang Bong Seok - an artisan producer who has received the prestigious designation as a Korean Food Grandmaster (in the category of Korean grains and syrups).
Grandmaster Kang makes this syrup using traditional techniques to keep that "yetnal" or original taste.
