Origins of Gochugaru Pepper

The culinary revolution in Korea was marked by the introduction of red pepper in the 17th century, a spice previously unknown in the region until the arrival of Portuguese traders in East Asia. The rapid adoption of this pepper in Korea transformed its gastronomy, placing it at the heart of many traditional dishes. Although modern methods have simplified its production, several ancient generations in Korea still perpetuate the tradition of its artisanal production. This ancestral process underscores the cultural and historical importance of gochugaru pepper in Korean cuisine.
