I discovered making my own Kimchi back in 2008. Thanks to Maangchi, I am now a certified home-made kimchi maker. At first, it was a challenge, then after I made my first successful batch, it was addicting.
Using fresh ingredients, I am sure of the taste and quality of what I am making. Makes it perfect to create other kimchi recipes like kimchi pancake, kimchi soup, kimchi fried rice and a lot more!!! Funny, I got my husband hooked-up on eating kimchi. He says I have influenced him to eat a lot of food he never imagined himself eating (i.e., squash, oatmeal, etc.).
I have a collection of step by step photos on how I made this kimchi. Enjoy viewing!
