So what is Kimchi? Kimchi, a staple in Korean Cuisine, is a traditional side dish made from slated and fermented vegetables. Kimchi is commonly made from napa cabbage and Korean radishes with a variety of seasonings such as chilli powder, scallions, garlic, ginger and jeotgal (salted seafood).
In traditional preparations, kimchi is stored underground in jars to keep cool, and unfrozen during the winter months.
Kimchi is mainly recognized as a spicy fermented cabbage dish globally, but there are currently more than 200 types of kimchi.
Kimchi from the northern parts of Korea tend to have less salt and red chili and usually does not include brined seafood for seasoning. Northern Kimchi however often has a watery consistency. Kimchi made in the southern parts of Korea, such as Jeolla-do and Gyeongsang-do, uses salt, chili peppers and myeolchijeot (brined anchovy allowed to ferment) or saeujeot ( brined shrimp allowed to ferment), Liquid Anchovy Jeot, similar to fish sauce used in Southeast Asia, but thicker.
