Corn Syrup/Mulyeot (물엿)
Mulyeot is a clear, thick syrup from corn. It's sweet but not by far similar to honey. It's mainly used as a thickener and sweetener to many dishes. While you can use sugar as substitute, it can't give the thick consistency mulyeot has, not even if you caramelise it. Sadly, we don't have a pinoy ingredient equivalent to it.
Mulyeot is mainly used in spicy stir-fried foods to mellow the kochujang.
This is available in local supermarkets at the asian food section.
