"Hi Maangchi, thank you always for your amazing recipes and your wonderful presence. You are a sunshine, a mother to us all! I have a question - I don't have lemons handy during this quarantine period. Do you think I can substitute it with vinegar? I do have some shaved lemon zest frozen in my fridge, so I am going to try sprinkling them, too. Well, I may just go ahead and see how it turns out before you get to see this ... trying not to go to stores unless I really need to ... I will let you know how it turns out! Thank you and PLEASE stay safe & healthy for all of us!"

"Hi Maangchi, I love your website! I've been you fan for a long time. Congratulations on publication of the new book! I saw it on NPR website. I bought your previous ones on kindle, but I will this time order a hard copy :) btw I came here today wondering how Korean people cook beans. Is there another delicious vegetarian bean dish that are not sweetened? Most Western bean dishes I know involves cooking them with olive oil and tomatoes (or bean burger) and I'm looking for variety! Thanks!"

"Thank you so much Maangchi! I will look out for the Korean writing - I studied Korean a little bit, so I should be able to find out. And I will wait until winter comes to make my Gochujang. I can't wait! ^^"

"Hi Maangchi, ever since I discovered this website a few days ago, I have been making your dishes from morning till night - I love Korean food and my 12 yo boy loves everything I make from this website! A huge plus! I have a couple of questions about Gochujang - 1. I also live in an apartment but I have a huge window. At the height of summer, right now, by the window my houseplants get at least 6, maybe 8 hours of direct sunlight. Do you think I can ferment gochujang by the window or does it need to be outside under the direct sunlight? 2. In case I can't make Gochujang - I have a question about the store-bought Gochujang. One of the ingredients is listed as "corn syrup." The product is made in Korea. In the US, most corn products are made from genetically modified (GM) corns. I'm wondering if Korean Gochujang contains GM corns from the US or the other parts of the world. I'd like to avoid GMO produces as much as possible. Thank you, I hope you will see this."
