If you need further encouragement to try the delicacy, consider that kimchi is also thought to be laden with nutritional properties. Kimchi contains vitamins A, B and C as well as lactobacilli (or good bacteria) that aids digestion.
The chunky dish is intended to overflow with flavour so, while making it, don’t worry about its lack of smoothness in texture. You can store kimchi in airtight containers and it keep in the cupboard for as long as it takes you to eat it.
You’ll find a particularly sour version of kimchi on the Nourished Kitchen website.
