Well the level of acidity that I like doesn't start to blossom till about 2nd or 3rd week at which time I put it in the fridge. It's already spewing out since it's full to the brim.

Yes that jjigae recipe is delish, I've made it several times. I also got a good recipe book from an author out in L.A. which covers a good amount of korean dishes and kimchi.

Yes that stuff is killer! I have a good recipe in the book I mentioned above.

After hearing Koreans cautiously ask me over and over if my white palette can handle spicy foods, I expected Korean cooking to be a capsaicin fest. But the average kimchi is not nearly as hot as the average Mexican salsa, in my limited experience.
No worries, I consume extremely spicy stuff (Thai, Taiwanese, Sichuan) so I guess my palate is probably shot because of it. Below you can see a pic of some thai food I made the other day which was pretty spicy.

Hahha, this is almost like a nightly thing for me. :P

And yeah and the kimchi threw up all over the counter the day before last, it's getting a nice and tangy now.

Maybe you can threaten to make garum and then downsell her to kimchi

Also -- if you buy kimchi from the stores, keep the glass jars. They are excellent containers for starters!

SubSailor- I wholeheartedly agree with you!!! I thought I was the only hot dog and kimchi fan.

My neighbour a couple houses down makes awesome stuff - I'm going to ask her if she'll share her recipe and method.

Incidentally, her husband's a German guy from Dortmund...maybe we can work some sort of swap...Dortmunder Export for kimchi...
