KOREAN KIMCHI



KIMCHI IN TWO GLASS JARS ON A DARK BACKGROUND




Kimchi is a fermented cabbage or other vegetable dish typical from Korea. There is a wide range of different kimchis and even if the one with cabbage is the most extended, it is also made with cucumber, turnips, radishes... It is always present in the Korean tables at any time of the day. 


This type of fermentation does not give a too strong flavour, it is a salty and spicy dish though, but you can adjust the seasoning to your taste

The best thing about kimchi is the amazing benefits it can have to our gut. Same as chucrut or kefir it is considered a natural probiotic with the advantage that it is easy to digest thanks to the fermentation process and it keeps its properties intact. It's a great source of vitamin C, it regenerates the gut flora and boosts the immune system.

It is said that each family in Korea has a different and personal recipe, varying the amount of spicy, salty or other condiments such as ginger, sesame or vinegar.The good thing about kimchi is that unlike chucrut it does not always contain vinegar and doesn't need much fermentation time, you can have it ready in three days. 


I haven't been in Korea myself but some relatives have and they brought me some red chili flakes from there, the ones I used in this recipe, and that are essential in any kimchi recipe  

So here's the recipe...
