Kimchi

is a traditional Korean side dish, with infinite variations. But the kimchi I know is made with Napa cabbage, brine, chili, and probably a couple of other ingredients. There's something magic about the balance of flavors, and the aftertaste it leaves in your mouth is almost as pleasant as eating it in the first place.



To tell the truth, I like kimchi on a hot dog. How different is it anyway from sauerkraut? I like to think of it as a jacked up version of sauerkraut. But it's also good with Ramen noodles, pizza, and use your imagination. According to the know-it-alls over at Wikipedia, Kimchi goes back almost 3000 years.

Kimchi was in the news recently. Because of climate change and the extreme weather it provoked in Korea, the Napa cabbage crop was insufficient to meet demand. The Koreans were forced to remove tariffs on imported Napa cabbage just so everybody could make their kimchi without going broke.

We're lucky: a local Korean lady sometimes gives us homemade kimchi. It's good.

Cabbage Patch Disasters

I have a friend here that makes kimchi that's wicked hot and delicious. I like it on beans and rice. Hot dogs sound good too. I must try that!
Climate change, eh? now I understand what I heard on NPR about the outrageous cabbage prices. I didn't hear the beginning of that story but was shocked that they would pay so much for cabbage.
