Gochujang is a savory and spicy fermented condiment that is a staple in Korean cuisine. It is made from red chili powder, glutinous rice, fermented soybeans, and salt, along with other optional ingredients such as sweeteners, garlic, and vinegar. The mixture is then fermented for several months to develop its unique flavor and complexity.
