    Hi everybody…

    i just made some kimchi last week using maangchi's recipe. It turns out slightly bitter. Anybody has any idea why it would be bitter?

    Thanks!!!

    bitterness can come from lots of factors. many times it is the vegetable that is the cause. wash off a piece and taste it. is the actual cabbage bitter? probably means it was passed its prime.

    if not, sometimes if you don’t cook the sweet rice flour long enough, the starchiness can leave a bitter aftertaste.

    also, bad oysters can taste milky and bitter. that could be it, too. sorry your kimchi is bitter.

    Thanks Dojo for the advice. I had the suspicion that my kimchi is soooo spicy that it tastes bitter too…

    Will give it another try soon!
