What a delicious and wonderful treat. This may seem extremely random, but I have to admit my love for this Korean side dish. Is it so wrong that I can turn this into a meal. And what I mean by meal, is a bowl of kimchi with a side of kimchi. I can't seem to recall where I first encountered kimchi, or even when I fell in love it. I do know that I can't stop eating the style of kimchi available at my local Korean Central Market. First it was small containers and those would disappear in a night. Next up the medium size containers, hmm somehow those disappeared in a night. Whoa what's this...a larger size; same thing. Where can I go from here, well I've graduated to buying the $19.99 tub.
I have tried to make my own kimchi, 3 times now, but I can't seem to really pull it together. Maybe I don't put the right spices in, let it sit long enough, cast the right spell...If anyone has any tips or suggestions to making your own kimchi; I would love to hear them. While $20 for a bucket (look at it compared to a 2L Pepsi) is a good deal, making it myself would make it that much better. Especially since H&W almost always has cabbage for cheap.
