Making my own lacto-fermented kimchi was NOT something I ever thought I’d bother doing. Every recipe I ever looked at made it feel so COMPLICATED. And I’d hear stories from people telling me not to bother making it when I could just buy it.
Well…that is total baloney. The only thing daunting about preparing kimchi is finding the weird ingredients. And the only thing to do about finding elusive ingredients is substituting with something that ISN’T hard to find. (At least sometimes.)
This kimchi tastes as AUTHENTIC as can be. It’s awesome, actually. I think it’s my favourite version I’VE EVER made. And now I want you to make it.

Don’t be overwhelmed by the number of steps. That doesn’t mean it’s difficult. Once you do it you’ll feel so much better.
