'Ganjang' Soy Sauce (Aged 5 Years)
This ganjang has a similarly Stiltonesque smell to its 3-year-aged cousin. Though the extra age brings out an even deeper flavor and a hint of sweetness, along with a slightly thicker, velvety texture.
About Ganjang Soy Sauce
5 YEAR AGED SOY SAUCE
The award-winning matriarch of the family behind Artisan Fermentary creates her ganjang (soy sauce) using only fermented Korean-grown soybeans, sea salt, and water. Aged for at least five years in traditional Korean earthenware urns, this ganjang has a similarly Stiltonesque smell to its 3 year aged cousin. The extra age brings out an even deeper flavor and a hint of sweetness, along with a slightly thicker, velvety texture. More complex and less salty than regular soy sauce, it adds an oomph in finishing dishes and also makes a great dipping sauce, by itself or mixed with a little vinegar and white pepper. Some of our friends have started using it in place of fish sauce or instead of Worcester sauce when making bloody marys!
