I have a confession to make. Up until last Thursday, I had never made Kimchi nor did i have a formal recipe. I did know the ingredients and spices necessary to create the fermented masterpiece. Well, today was the 7th day since I had placed my gallon glass jar of the delicious Kimchi. IT CAME OUT PERFECT!! The balance of sweet, sour, savory and spice made this one of the top 5 Kimchi’s I have ever tried and it was so easy. kimchi

USEFUL TIP:  Don’t have a recipe. Add ingredients in a bowl and continuously test until you get the desired taste. Too salty, add something sweet.  Too sweet, add some acidity. Keep playing around and eventually you will get a great understanding of ingredients that compliment each other and those that should never be together.
