Beginning Stages of Homemade Hot Pepper Paste…can’t wait for the final stage!


On January 27, 2013 I decided to delve into making gochujang. I avoided buying pre-made gochujang from the store (via internet) for many months because I’ve been gathering all the ingredients since Maangchi’s recipe was first posted.

It’s only been a few weeks but the Mini Onggi jars (two) have been getting some sun periodically and I’ve been kind of cheating by tasting it each week. I’m not sure if it’s going to last through the fermentation process before it gets all used up in my cooking. I cut the batch 4x because there wasn’t enough of barley malt powder (my dear husband used most of it brewing homemade beer :P). The final stage photos will be posted when ready…

The recipe is here.
