Product Description

Red chili pepper flake ("Gochugaru" in Korean) is one of the key ingredients in Korean cooking. It cannot be replaced with chili flakes or sauces from other cultures when cooking authentic Korean food. Koreans select their red chili pepper flakes carefully because it is possible to get unclean and unsafe materials in the flakes during the production process. Many Koreans source their red chili peppers directly from a farm they personally know, or purchase from a reputable company. The color is bright red. This is a decent product if you are looking for more affordable red chili flakes.

I'm happy to be able to get this product on Amazon! It makes wonderful kimchi! I don't know exactly what makes this different than, say, cayenne pepper flakes, but it does seem to have a darker flavor. This is about the same heat level as good cayenne. Do not use 'crushed red pepper' because that is cayenne mixed with dried red bell pepper to 'water it down.'
For great kimchi, mix up a healthy handful of this along with about 3/4 as much rice vinegar and sesame oil combined to make a somewhat thin paste. It's not an exact science; I use the smell to tell me how much of everything is enough. Take a deep whiff; it should make you go, "Mmmmm...." Mix in a good, heavy dose of kosher or pickling salt and spread it all over a variety of chopped veggies, with Nappa cabbage as the dominant veg. I also like grated carrot, coarsely chopped onion and green cabbage. Broccoli works well, but it will maintain its own flavor. The pepper paste may not seem like enough for all your veg, but keep mixing it with your hands until the orange gunk is evenly coated over everything. Now take a taste. The first flavor to hit your tongue should be salt (but not too much salt) followed by a very tiny bite of vinegar and a good, smoldering back flavor of spicy heat. That just tells you that you have made enough paste and in the right proportions; the finished kimchi will taste better than this because the flavors will be married together. The veg should start to make liquid and break down in size. Store the mix in a stainless steel or glass bowl or, better yet, a ceramic crock at cool-to-room temperature for anywhere from 3 days to a week, covered with cheesecloth, stirring everyday to keep the veg moist in the juice. Basements are great places for this.

I was making Kimchi for the first time and my friend had given me this pepper. It is not like other pepper in that it adds more flavor than anything else. I add a very hot chili power to make my Kimchi hot, i use this pepper to give it flavor.

I bought tae-Kyung korean red chilli pepper flakes powder for kimchi that I was making it. It arrived quickly and tightly sealed in a ziplock bag. The bag teared easy so I didn't need scissors. When I was done using the bag securing it closed with the ziplock didn't cause me any issues the bag closed right up. This is the first purchase of korean red chili peppers I've ever purchased. By the size of the bag I don't think I'll be purchasing any for awile. The smell is a smokey smell, and the color is deep red, it definitely gave that spice and smokeyNess that my kimchi needed.

I made some great kimchi with this and it was exactly the flavor I needed! Not too spicy, not too "earthy". Great value for a lot of a quality ingredient. Keep it sealed in your fridge for continued freshness!
