    The 'food you'd never eaten before but just have' thread

    Kimchi

    Pros: It provides you with flatulence potent enough to floor old people at 20 paces

    Cons: It's fucking vile



    This was authentic, by the way.

    Fresh out of Korea.

    I remember (will never forget) a weekend near Ft. Bragg undergoing some specialized training. We were staying four to a room in a crummy motel near the site - the weather was below freezing. Two of the troops in my room had Korean wives, who had packed for them boxes full of jars of homemade kimchi. Eventually, you had to eat it out of self defense. It was way too cold to leave the room at night, so four of us ate kimchi, farted, ate kimchi....... I've always wondered after a week of us if they ever got the stench out of that room.

    Yep. Probably killed the poor room-cleaning person who was first to open the door after we checked out.

    I could guess that those whom might find kimchi rather foul have only been exposed to one type....
    As like anything, for everyone that makes kimchi there is a different way of curing and producing. Some varieties can be quite pleasant and others not so much.

    Seems all you have to do to enjoy Kimchi is move in with a guy called Gregory

    The first few times I tried kimchi it was not, I must admit, my favorite food. Then I met my Korean-American partner, Gregory, moved in with his mom — a superb cook — and within a few months I was wholly converted. These days my mouth waters at the slightest whiff of pungent, fermented cabbage and I'll eat it with everything from fried rice to dumplings, summer rolls, or, ahem, straight out of the jar. I still have a lot to learn from Mom when it comes to kimchi making (there are over a hundred different kinds!)

    Just because the copyright has run out here doesn't mean you are free to post PM's from Betty.

    That's still against the rules.....

    I like it, especially when made by an Isaanite. The Korean stuff (despite their BS) is too mild. The stuff one of my client's Isaan maids made was great. The Korean family though it was too spicy, so were more than happy to let me have some (ok, a lot).

    I just made some of that shit on Armstrong's cooking thread. Don't rightly know if there's a name for it .. meanwhile let's just call it, shit.

    All the years I lived in Korea never have I tried kimchi. The smell is enough for me.

    Most are just stronger than others as in spicier. The older the kimchi the stronger it is.
    One thing I do NOT miss from Korea is the Kimchi. Even though I don't mind it, I really don't miss it.

    it's the only thing i miss,,,, spat it out when i first tasted it ( when nobody was lookin)
    but after 2 or 3 times i was hooked.
    Many claimed it kept the SARS virus at bay.
    Koreans have been using the dish for over 1 or 2000 yrs.. long time anyway.

    You're right. kimchi made with vinegar is tasty and doesn't smell bad. The kimchi made by a Korean is ferminted (rotten) vegetables which gives its sickening stench.

    I thought you pride yourself of not eating any strange foreign foods, specially not from Issan? 'cause it's inferior, just like the peasants who eat it...


    Anyway, Kimchi is very good for ya, folks, the Sourkraut of the Far East.
    Lactic acid - your mom should have eaten some "The role of lactate for brain metabolism seems to be even more important at early stages of development (prenatal and early postnatal)"

    Yip, supposed to be a cure all for everything.
    I didn't like it for a long time, and then I couldn't get enough. I found over time though it gave me acid reflux.

    Fermented cabbage.. I went to the Kimchi museum in Seoul where they show you how they used to store it underground in kimchi pots and let it ferment. ...
