Kimchi (김치) – fermented cabbage that is spicy and sour; a traditional Korean side dish; traditionally stored in underground jars for months; smart food preservation dish
Some things are iconic to South Korea- Drama shows. Samsung. Psy & Gangnam style- Kimchi is no exception!
You can always find a jar of kimchi stored in my fridge. Sometimes I eat it raw as a side dish, but usually I use it when I cook Korean food. The great thing about Kimchi is that it can be stored for a very long time.
A word of caution about kimchi- it stains! Take extra precautions when working with this delicious culinary wonder.
You can buy kimchi at any Korean mart. They come in little jars, all the way to big bucket size.
