Kimchi is one of these foods that I discovered after going vegan. I think I had heard the term before but I had no association as to what it may mean!
It is not a short process but it lasts me a while and you can even double or triple the recipe if you love kimchi and consume it often.
In my first few attempts I over-fermented the kimchi and it came out slightly (or not so slightly!) bitter. I have now shortened the fermentation period and I am getting excellent results.
I am still getting used to eating it raw but I absolutely love it in stews. I hope you find this guide useful and enjoy the freshness!
