Kimchi – Korean Fermented Vegetables
Kimchi is a traditional Korean side dish made from fermented cabbage, radish, or cucumber.
Kimchi has quite a complex flavor and not every kimchi has the same taste.
First, it is slightly salty because it has been pickled in salty brine. Second, it is slightly spicy, excluding white kimchi which does not use any Korean chili flakes. Third, it has umami flavor. It’s also seasoned with Korean fish sauce to aid fermentation, so as time goes by, the deeper the kimchi’s flavor develops. Forth, ripened kimchi is sour and has a pungent smell. This stage of kimchi is great for cooking.
