"Hi Maangchi - I love your website and your cookbook, but I have had an impossible time finding dried anchovies. I finally found some in a Korean shop I just discovered in the nearby city (hooray!), and was excited to prepare them. But when I got home to my book and your website, they seem to be "the wrong size", because all the recipes are for either the little ones (tiny little things) or the big soup ones, which are much bigger in the pictures, but mine are a little over an inch long, the middle-size. How should I use them? I can take their heads off, but when I try to remove their guts they just break into pieces, because they are very dry. What do you do with medium-sized dried anchovies? Maybe it's best to use them for soup? Should I soak them forst so I can get the guts out? Thank you so much for your help, and for everything you teach us :-)"
