I set myself on a quest this past weekend. The goal was to make one of my favorite Korean dishes that contained many nutritional and Beauty benefits.
What is this dish? Kimchi
What is Kimchi? Kimchi is Korea’s national dish. Kimchi is considered any kind of fermented vegetable. The more familiar version of kimchi is the cabbage version.
Being someone who likes to make my own foods especially if I am in love with the taste. I love Kimchi or at least the ones I have tasted. So I took on the challenge of making my own kimchi. With the help of my favorite chef on youtube Maangchi I collected the ingredients from Hmart ( a Korean grocery store) and went to work.
After watching How to make Traditional Kimchi Video a dozen times and buying all the ingredients mention in video and web site I set to work soaking then salting the Nappa Cabbage.
I ended up letting the cabbage salt over night and in the morning prepared the porridge to dress the cabbage.
After two days my kimchi came out a little on the salty side which works well with plain brown rice and bland mushroom soup. So over all I was very satisfied with my results.
