These red pepper flakes have a more-ish capsicum-like sweetness with a mild chilli warmth.

Traditionally used for making Kimchi and other Korean condiments, I use them in place of chilli flakes and they add a gorgeous subtle warmth and flavour. A little goes a long way.

So different to the bulk imported Asian supermarket pepper flakes.

SUPPLIER Herbies Spices - Ian and Liz Hemphill in Sydney search the globe for stunning spice. Ian is an expert in this area of culinary knowledge and over the years has been so generous sharing his wisdom with me, so I can pass it on.

These are of the highest quality - not all spice brands are made equal!

Why the real article?

Can you describe what it is to be Australian?  To us it’s the feeling you have when you see a boomerang fashioned from flimsy balsawood, made in some cheap-labour offshore country, for tourists to buy for a pittance and take home as a “genuine” Australian article.  The same feeling of outrage and violation is felt by Koreans when their beloved Kimchi is made using inferior, imported products to ensure a cheaper cost to consumers, bringing the entire Korean Kimchi image into disrepute.  The Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs in Korea has revised their “Kimchi Industry Promotion Act” to legislate that true Korean Kimchi must be made from Korean-grown ingredients.  Why are we telling you this?  It’s to explain why our Korean Red Pepper Flakes, grown in Korea, are more expensive than some others you may find in the market place.  It’s your choice – have the genuine ones from Herbie’s, or make do with the lesser product.
