The Expat Pantry :: Kimchi



Homemade Kimchi

When you are lucky enough to be offered homemade kimchi, just say yes.  Even if you hate it, take it and give it to a friend who loves it because it's culinary gold.  Personally, we find that unlimited kimchi is one of the many delicious perks to living in the countryside.  Our current supplier is one of our employers whose family has become like family to us.  This is just one of the boxes delivered this year during 김장 (kimchi making season).  In addition to this, we are allowed unlimited refiles for the rest of the year.  

You might be thinking, "Isn't this a bit of an overkill for a bunch of foreigners?  Not in our kitchen. We have already finished half of this giant tub in only last three months.  It's just magic in about everything we put it in.  We don't eat kimchi because we have to, we eat it because we love it.

The two kimchi based recipes we make the most of are these :

Kimchi Fried Rics:

Kimchi Jjigae:
