JookJangYeon Premium Gochujang $20.95 - $47.95

JookJangYeon, a business founded by wine importer Michael Jung—whose father carved out a decades-long relationship with farmers in the mountain village of Jukjang-myeon in Korea.

The producer works with local farming collectives to harvest their soybeans and prepares their products with care using traditional methods—such as boiling meju (blocks of fermented soybeans) over a fire made from oak logs before they are tied up with rice straw ropes and hung to dry outdoors in the natural valley winds.

Not sure how you’d use it?

We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.


The best version we’ve tried of the condiment, use where you would any gochujang—its clean, rich taste will take your food to the next level. We especially love it on our Gochujang-Glazed Potatoes (Gamja Jorim) and Miso-Gochujang Pulled Pork.
