Commercial kimchee powder has been used for decades—made from the dried dregs of the fermentation pot (ongi). It’s used primarily as a soup additive. It has a coarse texture and a lot of MSG and sugar to compensate for the burnt taste from high-heat drying. My Hanguk Saffron is made from whole heads of vegan kimchee that are specifically fermented for low-heat dehydration and milling, then carefully blended with aromatic spices to balance the flavor. This powdered kimchee seasoning has no MSG or preservatives, just the pure taste of a fine vegan kimchee—packed in air-tight foil pouches that range in net weights of 1, 1.5 and 2 oz.
When you open your foil pack you’ll notice the aroma of Napa cabbage and ginger. Hanguk Saffron lends a sweet pimento flavor to baked goods such as biscuits, scones and pie crust. It also adds a deep savory flavor to stews, soups, fritters and sauces with subtle notes of toasted sesame seeds and garlic. It’s perfect for making kimchee butter to use as a spread or for making short bread cookies. This powdered kimchee seasoning gives food a mild spicy heat and a beautiful saffron glow that complements any meal.
