Kkakdugi (cubed radish kimchi)

I made my own kimchi for the first time — kkakdugi! Wow, it was SO simple and not very time-consuming at all! Plus delicious, of course. This picture was taken right after I put it in the jars. Next time I make it, I will definitely double the recipe. I am really enjoying how the flavors and textures have been evolving every day! Also I realized that store-bought kimchi is a rip-off! =)

The recipe for Kkakdugi (cubed radish kimchi: 깍두기) is here!

    I just made my first ever radish kimchi. I’ve been making the cabbage kimchi for about a year and a half and love it. Didn’t think I’d like radish kimchi…boy was I mistaken! I only made a half pint experimental amount from daikon that I had on hand and the first taste is very good. I’m leaving it to ferment 2 or 3 days and tasting again. I can barely wait! Thank you for your wonderful simple recipe and clear instructions.

  2. looks very spicy but good

    I know how you felt when you put your homemade kkakdugi in the jars! It’s an accomplishment! From now on, you will make this all the time.
    I have some kkakdugi in my fridge. It goes with rice and any types of Korean soup.
