Soy Sauce/Ganjang (간장)
Soy sauce is an indispensable condiment every kitchen needs. This one here is a korean brand soy sauce. What is the difference? It's a little more diluted than our local "Datu Puti Soy Sauce". Have you ever noticed a month-old bottle of our local soy sauce and the calcified residue at the bottle cap? That's how dense our soy sauce is.
This particular soy sauce is called jin ganjang. There's another kind used particularly in soups and dips for its reduced sodium content therefore know how expensive it is. Jin ganjang is just the regular soy sauce. If you are opting for a less salty alternative, go for this.
