Kimchi The Great

김치 in Hangeul pronounced as Kimchi, Kimchee or Gimchi, is a Korean traditional fermented side dish normally has napa cabbage, radish, scallion or cucumber as the focus ingredients. In traditional preparations, kimchi was stored underground in jars to keep cool during the summer months and unfrozen during winter months.
I was never a fan of spicy food before, most definitely not a fan of vegetables too! But having eaten this Kimchi for the first time, I felt this isn’t such a bad thing after all. Although it smells like a flying lemur sometimes, that does not defy its wonderfull – sometimes being craved at – flavor.

Ever since my 흉님 (brother-in-law or older brother) visits us, he never fails to bring his mother’s most prized kimchi flavor. Until then, I’ve learned how to cook 김치 찌개 (Kimchi Jjigae) a Korean Stew made with Kimchi, pork belly and 김밥 (Kimbap) More like a Korean sushi. Etymology: Gim – seaweed and Bap – as rice. Thus rice rolled with seaweed plus whatever ingredients you plan to put in it. Just dab it with sesame oil and it tastes perfectly as it should be.

South Koreans consume roughly 20kgs of kimchi per person a year. It’s not surprising why they have good skin because Kimchi is made of vegetables all the way which contains high concentration of dietary fiber, and low in calories. It also has enough amount of Vitamin C and carotene. Think of it, it’s really healthy okay?

Anyway, my work mates sister has studied on how to prepare Kimchi at home and surprisingly, it tastes good. Like the ones on the Korean Restaurant at the mall.

I posted a small add on my Facebook page.
