Kochujang is ground kochu (pepper) or it is a korean chili pepper paste. It is made from glutinous rice powder mixed with both powdered, fermented soybeans and red peppers. It is used in various korean soup, and also used in dipping vegetables such as cucumbers.
I bought this kochujang in the market. Although my mother in law gives us kochujang and dwenjang (bean paste), but hubby likes the kochujang that i buy in the market.
