   “The people of Kwangju where this recipe originates like their food
   salty and chili-hot. The fermented denjang paste provides the basis
   of the seasonings, aided by the chili and ginger. The fresh crabs
   absorb the flavors and the entire soup is enormously attractive. I
   went to my teacher’s house one August in the middle of a three day
   pre-typhoon downpour. Sheets of water poured out of the sky as my
   taxi wended its way to the edge of town. The rice fields in this
   rice-growing region shimmered with an intense green as the rain
   engulfed the paddy. It had a wild, wet beauty but I was glad when I
   arrived and could concentrate in comfort on the crabs and the soup.”
   1. Put the water and bean paste (denjang) into a pan and simmer over
   low heat, covered, for 10 minutes. Add the bean curd and cook for 5
   minutes more.
   2. Now add all the other ingredients and cook for 15 minutes more.
