These big onggi pots (or “crocks“) can be used for making  and preserving many things: soybean paste, soy sauce, hotpepper paste, fermented salty fish, rice wine, and of course kimchi. They are good for fermenting and storage. Koreans keep these in the corner of the yard, and sometimes kimchi pots are buried underground so they don’t freeze in the winter.
