Why so special? Beauty of 1,000
Fermentation is the art of time and care. It takes 1,000 days deliver this special sauce to your kitchen. At Jookjangyeon, farmers grow the soybeans for 200 days. After the harvest, maeju (fermented soybean block) is dried for 50 days, then fermented 20 days. This fermented maeju is mixed with other ingredients for another 60 days of fermentation, and 2 years of final aging to reveal its rich flavor.
Even the salt used for Jookjangyeon products is a special sun-dried sea salt that has gone through 3 years of natural bittern-removal process. This purifying process removes bitterness from the natural salt.
Like a good vintage wine, Jookjangyeon products are different each year. To capture the essence of natural beauty, Jookjangyeon only produces 1,000 earthen pots each year. How many vintage years have you tried?
