My first attempt at making Kimchi was frankly terrible, then I found this Paleo version and decided to try it since veggies and fermented foods are both so good for us.
After a week of the mixture sitting quietly beside my fireplace, I decided to give it the sniff test. Mmmmm it smelled wonderful! Like spicy fresh saukraut (I loved my dad's homemade saukraut). Then a tentative nibble.
Wowza! That stuff is electric flavours of spicy, salty and veggy in perfect harmony.
So happy that it turned out like that. Thank you Paleo Leap for posting the lacto-fermentation recipes!
