Hi there. I live in Yellowknife, NT Canada and cannot buy the Red pepper powder required to make Kimchi. I have purchased dried red chilies from a Vietmanese store here, and am planning on foodprocessing them to make kimchi this weekend. If the flavor isnt what i'm looking for, then I plan on buying pre-made kimchi and getting it shipped to me.
Using this website that i found on the 'where to buy' forum.
The only problem im facing when im looking at the cabbage kimchi is that there are 3 different whole cabbage kimchi types, and 1 cut kimchi type.
Im not quite sure what the differences are between them and cannot read Korean. Ive tried website translators but what they translate to doesn't make sense.
I like my kimchi quite spicy and when I'm making mine tomorrow im using Maangchi's recipe with carrots and radish (Using Daikon).
Can anyone shed some light into the 3 different varieties of Kimchi that are for sale on the website? Because i'm really considering buying it pre-made. (Will still be making kimchi tomorrow using the whole dried red chillies, just to see if it works).
