  1. Hi!
    I went to the Korean grocery store a few days ago and bought some gochujang. I just made some bibim guksu and it tastes a lot spicier than it did with my last container of gochujang.
    I don't know any Korean so I just kind of guess when I buy things lol. Are there different levels of spicy for gochujang?
    I took a picture of the one I bought. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could look at it and tell me if I bought a spicier one (if that is possible). If i did, what should I look for on the container to mark it as mild for next time? Thank you =)

  2. I dont think ive ever seen anything on gochujang (or gochugaru for that matter) that would indicate how hot it is. It seems to me that somebrands are hotter than others, one time i bought the wang brand in the glass jar and it want very hot, but this time i bought the assi brand in the plastic container and its really hot, i would suggest finding a brand you like.. good luck!

  3. Thank you. I just remembered I didn't put honey in this time,, maybe that made the difference?

  4. Look at the ingredient list the earlier pepper shows up the hotter it will be. I bought one that pepper was first and it was extreamly hot.

  5. Jim Carrey has become one of the most recognized faces in the world —and it is precisely because of his face that he has achieved such fame. His rubbery look, and penchant for wild and extreme behavior has given him a notoriety he delights in.
    Born in New Market, Ontario, Canada on January 17th, 1962 to a working class family, growing up poor was tough for young Jim Carrey, While in his teens, he had to take a job as a janitor when his father lost his job and he had to juggle both School and work. School eventually lost out and he dropped out. He describes himself as being very angry at this time in his life, yet one good thing came out of it. He developed a tremendous sense of humour to help him cope and to shield his anger from the world.
    He was a loner who claims he didn’t have any friends because he didn’t want any. Between school and work there just wasn’t much time for a childhood. At 15 though, he had enough time to start performing at Yuk Yuks, a famous Toronto comedy club where he began to perfect his shtick. He moved to LA and did the club circuit there. He soon came to the attention of Rodney and was put on his tour.
    Jim Carrey got his big break in 1990, when he landed a role on the hip new sketch comedy show In Living Color which boasted a cast of African-Americans and Carrey, the sole white guy. While there, Carrey perfected many characters, most notoriously “Fire Marshal Bill” who always went up in a blaze. The sketch was yanked when critics claimed that it encouraged kids to play with fire. The controversy put Carrey’s name in the headlines for the first time.
    He broke into feature films, and into the collective unconscious of the world, in one single successful year, 1994. It was the Year of the Funny Face. First there was Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, a surprise hit that show Carrey’s now signature wacky style.louis vuitton purses Next came The Mask, a role that seemed tailor-made for him and was a hit with audiences. As if he hadn’t made an impression yet, there was still Dumb and Dumber which was released during the holiday season and ended up on top of the box office. Jim Carrey was in the limelight now and he hasn’t looked back since.
    Since that famous year Carrey has, dare we say it••••, slowed down a bit. His films have come out less often but have continued to make waves if not quite of the caliber as previously seen. There was Batman Forever, in which he inherited the role of The Riddler. Then there was a sequel to Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls which didn’t quite recapture the sparkle of the original. Next came Liar, Liar. The film was a tremendous success with crowds everywhere and put him back on top. It also brought his salary back up 20 million. Then came The Truman Show, a film which proved to the world that Jim Carrey was more than just a funny face.
    In fact,louis vuitton handbags Jim was awarded a Golden Globe for his dramatic portrayal. When he was snubbed by the Oscars, there was a collective gasp heard around the world. Clearly the fans at least think Jim Carrey is golden.
    The future looks good for Jim Carrey,ed hardy he has developed a legion of devoted fans who love his wild style of physical comedy. He has proven his ability to weather a storm and come out on top, important for any celebrity.
    Carrey has come a long way from his unhappy childhood and in fact seems to be living a second childhood men wallet Canada has been producing fine comedic talents for years, and Jim Carrey is definitely the best of the new breed.

  6. @anything,

    The answer is yes. I have bought kochujang that comes in various degrees of heat. If you look at the pictures below you can see at first the two containers appear to be the same. But in the pictures below that, you can clearly see that they are two different levels of heat. Notice that one container, in the bottom lefthand corner, has a number "3" and underneath it says "Moderate" and indicates that (what I'm assuming is) the red pepper amount is 60-100 ppm (parts per million). The second container has a number "4" and it says "Very Hot" and the ppm is 100-130. I don't know if all brands come in various strengths like this. The one pictured is the brand I use and recommend, Sunchang, I believe Maangchi also recommends this brand as well. I definitely like the hot one! Hope this helps!

    ryan :)

  7. It's beautiful, is beautiful, it's wonderful! House MD[url=]house md dvd[/url] is probably, hands down, the best drama on television this time. And certainly[url=]grey's anatomy dvd[/url] a heck of a lot better than Grey's Anatomy and[url=]smallville dvd[/url] Scrubs (not even me started on that show ...)! Hugh Laurie, [url=]walt disney dvd[/url]playing Dr. Gregory House is a phenomenal actor, not just a drama like House MD, but in my own British comedy bits as well (See: Bit Fry and Laurie). Yes, he is English. I know that does not show accents. Cool, eh? This shows how talented he is! I [url=]24 hours dvd[/url]never knew a man could be considered more clean-shaven stubble, but the big baby-blue eyes and tan skin just does not seem right to completely shaved. He's terribly nice man. House of sarcasm and wit to keep you watching, smiling, even laughing. He charming and seductive ... Who could ask for more?
