What is kimchi
made of?

The main ingredient in kimchi, a traditional Korean food, is fermented vegetables. The most popular and important ingredient is sliced, salted, and fermented napa cabbage.

You can also include other vegetables like radishes, cucumbers, and scallions. Various flavours, such as chilli pepper flakes, garlic, ginger, and salted seafood like fish sauce or shrimp paste are frequently used with the cabbage.

These components are responsible for the kimchi’s unique umami, sour, and spicy flavours. The mixture is then given time to ferment, which brings out the flavours and gives the kimchi its distinctive sourness.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″ css=”.vc_custom_1667818567064{padding-top: 25px !important;padding-right: 10px !important;padding-left: 10px !important;background-color: rgba(244,244,244,0.8) !important;*background-color: rgb(244,244,244) !important;}” conditional_render=”%5B%7B%22value_role%22%3A%22administrator%22%7D%5D”][vc_column_text]

Why should you store kimchi in airtight containers?

As a fermented food, the development of the flavour depends heavily on the fermentation process. You may better manage the fermentation process by storing it in an airtight container.

By restricting the entry of external air and microorganisms that could disturb or contaminate the fermentation, the airtight seal contributes to the maintenance of a consistent environment.

By establishing a barrier against external factors, an airtight container helps maintain the quality and freshness of kimchi. It stops air, moisture, and smells from getting inside the container, which could otherwise lead to the kimchi becoming bad or absorbing undesirable flavours from the environment.

How can you store kimchi
properly?

Wondering how to store kimchi properly? First, the kimchi must be allowed to ferment at room temperature to reach the proper level of sourness. When the kimchi has reached the proper stage of fermentation, put it in the refrigerator.

For kimchi storage in the refrigerator, pick an appropriate airtight container and to accommodate the natural gases produced during fermentation, leave some headspace in the container.

To ensure that the veggies are completely buried in the brine and to remove any air bubbles, press down firmly on the kimchi as you transfer it to the container. Then set your refrigerator temperature to around 1.7-3.9°C.
