      Has anyone tried theirs? Sometimes I’m lazy to go to a restaurant and buy some kimchi. It sounds really good and I’m thinking about ordering a jar when I have money. The last time and first time I bought kimchi in a jar, it was really sour!

      I hope you make your own homemade kimchi instead of ordering it!

      I don’t know but post back with a review if you do decide to buy. I’ve tried the stuff in the mass market grocery stores (usually located in the produce/vegan section) and they’ve been god awful. The one jar I purchased, I promptly threw away within five minutes of opening. It didn’t even taste like kimchee.

      Ironically enough, my father (all 5’5 white Irish feet of him) is a fantastic kimchee maker. I don’t know how he does it, but it comes out almost effervescant…with a slight tingly, carbonated kick that reminds me of pop rocks. Not too sour, not too soft…just right. However, he doesn’t make it anymore, and I live farther from him than I do the nearest Asian grocer. Bummer.

      Thanks, I will! I’m just waiting to get some money so I can order a jar right away :)
