Question: What type type of pepper exactly?[edit]

What is the exact pepper they use (Genus: Capsicum(right?), species???) "Red Chili pepper" that seems kind of vague. Is it Cayenne?

question: jol myeon[edit]

hi. i have a question about the sauce used for jol myeon (a chili-sauced cold noodle which i've only eaten vegetarian):

is the sauce simply a variation on gochujang (고추장)? is there a standard recipe for this variation (i.e. do variations of this sauce simply add a particular ingredient to gochujang)? also does this have a specific name? and do families usually buy the sauce ready-made or do they prepare it at home?

a further question is how does this sauce differ from the bibimbap condiment?

all answers with be greatly appreciated? (i've also asked this question at Talk:Korean cuisine). thank you very much – ishwar  (speak) 02:39, 6 February 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Jol Myeon sauce recipe[edit]

The "official" sauce is made from the following proportions:

2 gochujang, 2 vinegar, 1 sugar, 1 lime-flavored soda (the common 사이다, the closest of which is 7-UP), 0.5 finely-chopped leek (pah, 파), 0.5 semamie-seed oil, a little bit of sesame seed, a little bit of lemon juice.

Basically it's gochujang flavored with vinegar, sugar and a little of lemon juice or similar tart-tasting liquid.

It's called 양념고추장 (yang-nyum gochujang), which just means "flavored gochujang"

Late 1700's or 16th century..???[edit]

In te beginning of the article it says that gojuchang has been in use since the late 1700's, later it talks about the 16th century when peppers were introduced...which one should I believe?? Kbarends (talk) 11:33, 17 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hmmm... the each information are right because the first introduction of red pepper doesn't directly indicate the invention of gochujang. The species was new to the land, so Koreans tried to harvest it and finally got good result to use it as food. It took almost one hundred year. --Appletrees (talk) 13:19, 17 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It might be mentioned that chilies originally come from Japan who got them from the Portuguese, who got them from the Spanish, who got them from the Mayans and Incas, who got them from Ecuador.Slmslr27 (talk) 19:20, 23 March 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is still unclear, and contradictory. The article currently says "...the first known record of Gochujang is in a Chinese document... The record explains that people in ancient Korea commonly ate Gochujang..." There is no indication when this document is dated, but if the paste was introduced to Korea in the 1700s (according to the article header), one would expect the document to be from the 1900s if it refers to "ancient" Koreans. The wording makes it seem like the document's veracity should be easy to check (since it appears to be relatively modern); or that the first statement about introduction in the 18th century is wrong.

Does any contributor to this article (which I presume includes several Koreans) have a jar of this they could photograph with a digital camera? Badagnani (talk) 20:39, 25 February 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Suggestion: replacement of "things"[edit]

The sentence "It can be used with many different things" in the first paragraph seems vague. I propose that it be edited to say something more along the lines of "It can be used with many different dishes" or, going further, "It can be employed in various dishes". — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:20, 11 November 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Could someone please update the IPA pronunciation in the first paragraph from 'æ' to 'a'? The cited source has 'a,' and that's how it's pronounced in Korean. Hearing celebrity chefs say 'gochujaang' has been driving me up a wall
