Apricot Jangajji – July 2021

I really wanted to bring you back a fruit-based kimchi this summer. All the recipes I’m confident with would not travel so well so I had a good think last year and decided that I would make a Jangajji, aka a Korean pickle. 

After a brainstorming session with a friend of mine, we ended up with this brilliant idea : Apricot Jangajji ! Sliced apricots preserved in sugar, then drained and mixed in a sauce that embodies the perfect alliance of sweet and spicy. Totally mouthwatering.

Traditionally, this Jangajji would be made with Korean green plums (Maesil), but these are quite impossible to find in London. 

You loved it so much last year that it had to be part of this year Collection too!

As with our other versions, naturally made without any preservatives or additives, The Korean Pantry APRICOT JANGAJJI is unpasteurised and is a great way to improve your gut health.


How to eat : you can eat this kind of spicy Jangajji quite simply, with freshly steamed white rice. Just a small piece of sweet and spicy apricot on top of a spoonful of rice. It works also beautifully with grilled pork belly wraps, Korean BBQ style. No cooking required, it’s a pickle.


Vegan friendly recipe.

Storage : Keep the pouch refrigerated in an upright position or decant in an airtight container. Jangajji will keep for weeks when stored correctly. Usual shelf life is 8 weeks when you order online.
