    I make my own and would like to see what other methods you might use.

    My basic starter ingredients. This is just a visual, not actual amounts.

    Lived in South Korea for a time, got to admit, Kimchi is not high on my list of things to eat. Saying that, with as much traveling as I did there, each place, town, resturant has its own style and type. It was very interesting to find these discoveries. However, I will be honored to allow you to eat all the kimchi, even my portion.

    I lived in Korea in 2002, and had previous exposure to kimchi from a deployment there in the Marines, back in 1990.

    I arrived hating the stuff, and left loving it.

    I still crave it.

    I love all kinds, but have had poor results making my own. My Korean brother in law's mother used to make some with daikon radish that was to die for!

    Used to work with a guy who had a wife that made it and it was great, But don't see him anymore. I love it with beer, side dish with your meal or my favorite Kimchi bagel sandwich!!!!! Haven't found a commercial jar, that has ever come close.

    Some of the Asian markets have some that pretty good, plus there prices are usually lower than trying to buy Asian products at regular grocery stores..

    Looking good! I love Kimchi but have never made it. Been wanting to make Sour Kraut for a while so I'll make up some Kimchi at the same time.

    Hatchetjack, try using Three Crabs brand fish sauce, if you can find it. I like it much better than the Squid brand.

    It's really a matter of taste. Most people like Squid or Three Crabs. I've met a couple people who use Phu Quoc Flying Lion which I've never tried.

    Kimchi plenty good no fish sauce
    Had a wonderful Korean gal from Puyallup teach me how to make it.Said the ingredients aren't set as there is about 100 different kinds of kimchi
    I have made cabbage,daikon radish,cucumber kimchis and some combos.
    I just have to leave the fish sauce out.
    There are a couple commercial manufacturers in the Tacoma area that do a great job,too
