  • You can find both pastes in Asian supermarkets. They also sell ssamjang already mixed in a tub, though I have to say that I like to make my own! :)
  • The hot water helps to thin the paste. The end product should allow you to scoop a little bit of the sauce with a pair of chopsticks, and not have the sauce slide off the end. Start out with 1t of hot water, and add more as needed.
