  1. Great, now I’ve got a taste for the stuff. I’ll have to stop at the grocery store on the way home and pick up some Kim Chee.

  2. Bisu,

    Actually gramma is just shown making seasoning for the kim chee. Though I was surprised to see her stuff whole cabbages into the jar.

    Who knew that the healthy way is to let your food ferment, rather than to deep fry it.

  4. Leo,

    I live in Korea. the stuff is AMAZING once you get over the initial shock… I can’t live without it now. I still miss southern cooking (I’m from Georgia), but having a Korean grandmother-in-law certainly gives me access to the dozens of different kimchis there are!

    • “the stuff is AMAZING once you get over the initial shock”

      So true!
      The first time I encountered it- decades ago- I thought it was gross. Now I can’t imagine life without it. Great stuff.

  6. Out here in the sticks, the only way to get all those ingredients is to drive a few hours. I’ve never ordered fresh food by mail. But we have a Chinese buffet that serves pretty good kim chee! Yeah, I know, but they serve curry and pizza as well -go figure. I don’t go to buffets anymore, but I bet they would prepare me a take out order.
