i like to eat kimchi but not all kinds of kimchi. kimchi has many varieties. it depends on regions, ingredients and taste since in south of korea and north of korea the temperature is different.

the kimchi from north of korea, the taste is not salty, not too spicy and they don’t put seafood for adjusment. in the south of korea, they make it salty, spicy and put dried shrimp to their kimchi. furthermore, korea has four seasons, so kimchi also depends on the season. it takes time to make kimchi, so korean usually prepare kimchi long time before. the way you make kimchi, it will affect to the taste.

in winter, usually they eat baek kimchi. it is made from radish, red pepper, onion and ginger.

korean always says that kimchi is spicy, but for me i think it just so so and a little bit sour. however, as i said before, kimchi is healthy because it contains high dietary fiber and low calories. it rich of vitamins and can reduce the cancer growth and also can treat the avian flu. see, how’s the function of kimchi??? try to eat kimchi, i know you will feel so strange when the first time you eat it. but, if you try many kinds of kimchi, you will like it much ^^
