We have been eating, this awesome kimchi I made a couple of weeks ago…I will have to figure out what I had done to make it come out so good. maybe I won’t be able to recreate it but I am up for the challenge.
I have been making kimchi since I was 3 and could help my Korean Grandmother. I do not really have a lot of available korean stores or restaurants here, since living in Germany. I have to make it every couple of weeks, days, months, depending on our eating habits. The kimchi I have been making lately has been to our tastes fantastic.
We moved the country, and have a bigger house I also have an extra refrigerator. I have the small German on in the kitchen and the American one in the garage. I keep all of the korean condiments, kimchi’s, extra water, and leftovers, and some of the veggies in the big refrigerator since the small one doesn’t hold much. Having the extra refrigerator has made it so much easier to make kimchi, and store it. Before I had to use small canning jars to hold our kimchi. Now I can use 2 quart jars, or gallon jars if I wanted. So, I have been making more kimchi than I had made in Stuttgart.
Lately though my kimchi has been really great. I mean it was good before but this has my DH doing the Kimchi Shimmy. I will have to post a recipe soon as we get near emptying out the last jars. I can’t say whether you would think it is the most awesome but it is rocking our boat.
