Homemade Kimchi III - Now A Kimchi Pro :P

At the request of Piggy Jo,  I made another batch of kimchi for her....this time a bigger load....I meant one  Pyrex mixing bowl - the biggest size  :)   and I felt like a pro  kimchi  maker....I think when I retire in a few years time, I want to make Kimchi and sell... '.Elinluv's Kimchi ' does that sound.....good prospect ???  LOL!  She loves kimchi like has many uses...not just as appetizer but so many dishes that we can cook up with.  Homemade ones taste better and this recipe is near authentic.  I love making them ! Is this a statement ?  :p  

I remembered the first time making them so quite a bit of work but as I continued practising making them, the work become easier....and the taste is much better each time I make the saying goes..practice makes perfect !   I made a bit more so that I can give some to my church friends and one tub specially for my first reader who become my good blogger friend....yea, none other than Lena of  Frozen Wings  for she once told me that she loves kimchi but finds it challenging to make :)  but after tasting mine I am sure she will want to try making some herself.  Thus, these photos are a simple guide for Lena and Piggy Jo, if they want to try making their first kimchi :p

Cling wrap it and leave it in the oven for a day
 for fermentation to start and after which 
I store them in the fridge for a week before consumption. 
It taste better after a week and it can keep for 2-3 months.   

I cut them neatly for my gal and store them in
air tight container so that it is easier for her
to take them out for cooking.....
Mom is the best person to have the kitchen
I mean  !   LOL!

  11. Kimchi can actually keep for years. There are restaurants in Seoul that specialize in serving kimchi jjigae (kimchi stew) made from 2-4 year old kimchi.

  12. I am impressed that you tackled your own kimchi! Veyr nice.
