Kimchi, isn't that the cabbage thing they stick in a tub in the ground for months on end while it ferments? (or used to, the traditional method)

I might be thinking of something else.

EDIT: Aaaand I just read the post above, so clearly not! :rofl: I must say Netflix, that looks yummy! For someone who says he hasn't much skill with cooking, you certainly got game.

That is what it is. Fermented vegetables, usually cabbage.

Oh I wonder why, it doesn't taste so bad unless it's over-fermented or they make it too spicy or they have used some secret recipe lol.

Yes, it the fermented cabbage but no it shouldn't be fermented that long or else it would be over-fermented and not edible. I'm not sure about the Korean traditional way though lol.

Thank you PopTart, sometimes it doesn't taste the way it looks :P

The Greeks and Romans had a fermented sauce, like Worcestershire or soy sauce. Here's a description of its preparation:

What is called liquamen is thus made: the intestines of fish are thrown into a vessel, and are salted; and small fish, especially atherinae, or small mullets, or maenae, or lycostomi, or any small fish, are all salted in the same manner; and they are seasoned in the sun, and frequently turned; and when they have been seasoned in the heat, the garum is thus taken from them. A small basket of close texture is laid in the vessel filled with the small fish already mentioned, and the garum will flow into the basket; and they take up what has been percolated through the basket, which is called liquamen; and the remainder of the feculence is made into allec.


Yum! :runaway:

Garums sauce, apparantly lead poisoning pretty much destroyed their sense of taste so they used to favour very strong flavours over everything else. I guess using lead in your aqueduct system had it;s cost, could you imagine how the smelt?!

The issue with lead wasn’t really with cold water systems — we ourselves had lead pipes up until quite recently, and many houses still do — but with lead pots and in particular a wine reduction sauce made in them, i.e., boiling an acidic liquid for a long time in a lead pot. Yikes.

Korean kimchi comes in all sorts of varieties and is often quite spicy. Traditionally it was fermented in clay pots underground to stay cool during the process. My friend's mother's was "5-alarm" kimchi. I broke out in a sweat at the table, much to their amusement.

Out of all the Korean food in existence, kimchi by far has got to be the mildest of them all, considering how spicy they eat. :lol: Y’all niggas just white af. You should give white kimchi a try. It’s even milder.

Almost all cultures have a form of fermented veggie of some sort, like Central Americans with their curtido or Eastern Europeans with their sauerkraut.

I love kim chi. Not big on spicy foods though.
The restaurant i used to work for used to make it in the kitchen. But they used to use a variety of vegetables. ( mostly root vegetables) and it was the best. :D they used to give it out as an appetizer. At every table.

I've looked around alot for a similar version. But only ever find cabbage based which isn't nearly as good.

Went fancy tonight with dinner and having a can of progresso cheese tortellini soup and grilled cheese. :D
