Made my very first kimchi this morning!
uh, forgive the crappy phone cam pic and random toes xD
The final result doesn't look all that impressive since I used local chilis instead of the firetruck-red Korean chili powder, but I think it tastes better than what I've tasted in korean restaurants <3 Even my 8yo nephew like it though he ended up in tears from spiciness lol
One thing I find odd is that it's slightly bitter.. dunno whether it's from the chilis or maybe the cabbage wasn't salted long enough
Since I don't really like the taste of raw chili, for lunch I stir-fried the kimchi, add an egg and leftover veggies- aaand it turned out way more delicious! =DD I might have to start thinking I have a hidden talent in cooking xD
I'll probably stir fry some more for dinner and left the rest to actually do what kimchi gotta do- ferment!
