[Kisoondo] Strawberry Gochujang Paste


Strawberry Gochujang! It's probably your first time hearing about it... but it sounds tasty, no? 

This unique strawberry gochujang is produced by an artisan from Jeollanam-do named Ki Soon Do.

She has spent the last 46 years making traditional Korean pastes. In fact, she comes from a family that has been producing Korean pastes for the last 360 years!

That's nearly 5 generations of artisans passing down their accumulated knowledge. In 2008, the Korean government officially recognized Ki Soon Do as a Grandmaster of Korean Foods.

To make this paste, Ki Soon Do adds freshly pureed strawberries to their famous gochujang recipe.

The ratio of gochujang to strawberries is 7:3. So the primary flavor is still gochujang - it has an earthy, spicy flavor. (Don't mistake this as strawberry jam!) 

However, the strawberries provide a slightly-sweet finish that rounds-out that spice. It makes this gochujang taste even more addictive!

This gochujang was also nominated as one of the Top-10 Rice-Made Products from Korea in 2017.

We've been experimenting with this gochujang in our studio. It works beautifully in Korean BBQ marinades or any type of seafood grills.

If you're the type that likes to experiment with new flavors, this is a great choice!

Amazing Gochujang!

My order just arrived today (earlier than expected, even with the projected delay! Items were expertly wrapped with care) and I've already tried every product I ordered. If you like the combination of sweet and spicy, you will love this. I tried it by itself and mixed in rice with gaeran mari and it is sooo good! It definitely has a sweet note (like in a honey barbeque sauce) and I could tell there was strawberry in there, but it wasn't overly sweet. I can't wait to try it as a marinade, as a dipping sauce for barbeque, or in homemade ssamjang!!!! I can also think of some creative ways to use it in sweets (possibly in something chocolate). Definitely worth the price and you probably won't find anything like this outside of Korea! Thank you Gochujar =D

Unexpected taste

I grew up on the traditional gochujang, so I was excited to try this one. I was pleasantly surprised at the mix of sweet and spicey. Not too sweet and not too spicy. I used it to make spicy chicken and it was delicious!
