Shitake mushrooms grow on a variety of dried up trees such as brushwood and oak trees. Kim InSoon harvests Shitake mushrooms directly from forests with these dried trees. It then adds the Shitake mushrooms into Gochujang made with grain syrup from barley malt (no artificial sweeteners), and stir fries the ingredients together. Premium-grade Gochujang, thanks to its chewy texture, was traditionally consumed in the royal palace. Historical records show that the royal family enjoyed a variety of vegetables with this premium-grade Gochujang.
