Hello...It looks and sounds delicious...but for it to have to marinade that long....I would for sure starve. :)
A good dietary method though:)

Have a lovely day!
donna,
sy belum pernah makan kimci..tapi melihat penampilannya sih, pasti rasanya asam2 pedes gitu khan?
oya, sekedar info, bahan baku kimci kalo ngga salah kol dan sebangsanya banyak diimport dari Berastagi (North Sumatera). dikirim dengan menggunakan container reefer.
saya pernah handle export ini..biasanya dikirim ke Taiwan dan Korea..
tuh...hebat kan indonesia..
halah...koq jadi ngomongin yang lain ya..hehe
I cannot imagine if I were Korean because almost every meal is served with Kimchi.

I think there is a need to create another variation of Kimchi. In this sense, I would ask my mother to cook Kimchi combined with...ehhmmm, GUDEG JOGJA....

Have you tasted it, Donna? But I cannot figure out what it be..hehehe
