This is my new 항아리 (hang-ari). I can't wait to make kimchi in it. I will probably get another one so that I can try making 막걸리.
I want to give a shout out to the owners of Chung Gae Oriental Market in Ayer, MA where I purchased my 항아리 (and also most of my supplies).
They have a great selection of Korean products and are very friendly and helpful. The lady who owns the shop always helps me find what i need and even helped me with my Korean spelling and pronunciation.
When I was showing off some of my Korean garden and food photos that I posted to Maangchi's website to her, some other customers came over and started talking to us. They really get a kick out if it that a white guy is learning the language, how to cook and even grow vegetables. One lady asked me if I was 한국 사람 and called me 아저씨! I said 아니요. 미국 사람이에요. My wife and I must have chatted with them for a half an hour!
