For people with this surname, see Kimhi. For other uses, see kimchi (disambiguation). Kimchi Various forms of contemporary kimchi Course Banchan Place of origin Korea Associated national cuisine North Korea South Korea Main ingredients Various vegetables including napa cabbageand Korean radish Variations Baechu-kimchi, baek-kimchi, dongchimi, kkakdugi, nabak-kimchi, pa-kimchi, yeolmu-kimchi, gat-kimchi Cookbook: Kimchi Media: Kimchi Korean name Hangul 김치 Revised Romanization gimchi McCune–Reischauer kimch'i IPA [kim.tɕʰi] Kimchi (/ˈkɪmtʃiː/; Korean: 김치, romanized: gimchi, IPA: [kim.tɕʰi]), a staple in Korean cuisine, is a famous[1]traditional side dish of salted and fermented vegetables, such as napa cabbage and Korean radish, made with a widely varying selection of seasonings including gochugaru (chili powder), spring onions, garlic, ginger, and jeotgal (salted seafood), etc.[2][3] There are hundreds of varieties of kimchi made with different vegetables as the main ingredients.[4][5]Traditionally, kimchi was stored in-ground in large earthenware to prevent the kimchi from being frozen during the winter months. It was the primary way of storing vegetables throughout the seasons. In the summer the in-ground storage kept the kimchi cool enough to slow down the fermentation process.[3] In contemporary times, kimchi refrigerators are more commonly used to store kimchi. Oh yeah I got the kimchi blues every day since I first ate it back in the day long before i went to Korea ended up staying on in Korea after i retired from decade in the Foreign Service and ten years studying and living in Korea before I joined the Foreign Service When I first ate kimchi I was hooked sort of a spicier version of German sauerkraut which i loved on my top dog from Berkeley high school days then off to korea in the peace corps where I ate kimchi every day for every meal and eventually I woke up dreaming of kimchi and rice instead of pancakes and eggs then I knew that I had finally adjusted and was becoming half Korean and now I am a hopeless kimchi addict need to have my spicy kimchi which is so good for you perhaps even defeating the dreaded corona virus? who knows but I will be eating Kimchi until my day is done Friday April 3 Cosmic Poet Modified Bio Poem for poetry soup contest cosmic I am wicked, wild, wacky, whimsical i love my angela lee, coffee, nature I can solve gun violence, homelessness and climate change I feel anxiety, gloominess yet Joy-fullness as well I fear the corona virus, cancer and developing Alzheimer's Must publish my novels, ten books of poetry and movie of my life Currently resident of korea, west coast of United States poet Morphing monsters - old poem for writing.com Dark Dreamscape - not otherwise posted [] Note: From a real nightmare End Note I am in a room Drinking at a party And smoking weed Watching people all around me Change into hideous creatures Monsters from the deepest depths of hell Everyone in the room Has been transformed except me The Chief of them all Wears a Trumpian mask Complete with orange hair Half human half pig His deputy Wears the face of Putin But his body Half human, half horse The other creatures wear masks Many of them wear Green Pepe the alt-right Symbolic frog masks And have T-shirts Bearing alt right slogans And Nazi symbols And as they prance about They chant alt.
