Easy as Kimchi

From memory the first time I had this dish was while visiting my kids in London and being taken on one culinary adventure after another. I'm such a spoilt mama! Kimchi is another fabulous fermented food you can easily add to your diet. A Korean traditional dish, it was a way of preserving cabbage for the cold winter months pre-refrigeration. There are many different ways of making kimchi and many different potential ingredients. The one I have made here is super basic. I've chosen everyday ingredients but I'm happy with the results. I've found each time I help myself to a forkful from the jar it gives me a nice little lift. Most kimchi has a strong red coloration, perhaps from more cayenne than I've used? though this one has a pretty good bite to it with just 1/2 tsp. For recipe read the full post.
