Hot, salty, and a little sweet! Chile fanatics will be happy to munch on these just as they are, and they also go great with rice and scallion pancakes! A traditional banchan made with soy sauce, lemon zest and brown sugar.

You taste the soy first, then the heat. I couldn't see myself munching on these, but I sure like them on a sub or in the rice and the eggs, as suggested. Made for ZWT 6.

Awesome recipe! I believe it is from Gourmet Magazine...I can never wait the 8 hours to start eating them. Good well before the 8 hours and well beyond the 3 days.
