Homemade Kimchi

My friends Adam and Elizabeth have two darling little daughters from Korea, and kindly have us over for Korean dinners that never disappoint.  On one occasion, I assisted Adam in making an enormous batch of kimchi, and he even gave me a big and little jar of it to take home.  The little jar to keep at room temperature, and make surprisingly loud fermentation noises, and the big jar to keep in the fridge.  Since it is hard to buy kimchi that doesn't contain fish sauce, it's worth the effort to make your own if you're a vegetarian.  But it was not a simple process.  I can't remember the recipe, so we'll see if Adam reads this and provides a link!

Uh, hi, I feel famous to have made the blog but don't recall exactly what we did. Pretty sure it was this recipe, minus the oysters and with vegetarian fish sauce from jay's :: http://www.maangchi.com/recipe/easy-kimchi

Still finishing off our last jar!

Oh I do hope you get the recipe, as I'd really like to make some (without fish sauce), homemade is sure to taste so much superior that shop bought too, which I found also quite pricey.

PS Just noted the recipe - from th first comment, so am bookmarking this for future use.
