100% Gochugaru Red Chilli Pepper Powder


🍴 Example Recipe: Classic Kimchi


  • 1 napa cabbage (about 2 pounds)
  • ½ cup sea salt
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon grated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ cup Korean red pepper flakes (Gochugaru)
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 small carrot, julienned


  1. Cut the cabbage lengthwise into quarters and remove the core. Cut each quarter crosswise into 2-inch-wide strips.
  2. Dissolve the sea salt in water in a large bowl. Add the cabbage and toss to coat. Let it sit for 2 hours, tossing every 30 minutes.
  3. Rinse the cabbage under cold water and drain in a colander for 15-20 minutes.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine garlic, ginger, fish sauce, soy sauce, sugar, and Gochugaru to make the kimchi paste.
  5. Gently squeeze any remaining water from the cabbage and return it to the bowl. Add the green onions, carrot, and kimchi paste. Toss until well combined and the cabbage is evenly coated.
  6. Pack the kimchi into a clean jar, pressing down firmly to remove any air bubbles. Leave about 1 inch of space at the top.
  7. Seal the jar and let it ferment at room temperature for 1-5 days, depending on your preference for sourness. Once fermented, store in the refrigerator.
  8. Enjoy your homemade kimchi as a side dish, in rice bowls, or as a flavorful ingredient in various dishes!
