The other day I was searching on YouTube for some Korean clay pot information as I am currently making some great Korean rice wine with my new Korean Clay Pot, also called “Hang-Ah-Ri” or “Onggi” in Korean. Well, I found Adam Field who spent 10 months in South Korea as an apprentice under master Korean clay pot makers.
Check out this video as Adam builds a Korean clay pot from ground up, it’s pretty awesome.
Why Korean clay pots?
Korean clay pots has been used by Koreans for centuries to ferment their foods like kimchi, soy bean paste, and even Korean rice wine which I am using it for. Korean clay pots actually allow air through its pores and also naturally controls moisture levels inside the pot, allowing perfect fermentation environment, resulting in better kimchi and rice wine.
