Saturday was a busy day! After working in the morning the afternoon was spent making kimchi, 12 Quarts of pickled peppers and 4 pints of sauerkraut.
Could I manage to find my recipes for any of these items. Nope. Luckily, the Ball Blue Book worked for all but the Kimchi.
The recipe for Kimchi can be found at the david lebovitz living the good life in Paris blog. The address is here: http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2008/02/a-kimchi-recipe/
Talk about a great post with awesome pictures!!! It is an easy to follow recipe and since there was no daikon in the fridge it was omitted.
It was awesome the same day and even better today. Thus my mom, who loves Kimchi, now has a quart finishing fermenting at her house. Though it must be admitted a small amount is stashed in the garage fridge.
The beer can smell the Kimchi but not me with my milk.
Sauerkraut is fermenting in the back room. Lovely, for hot dogs and pork later in the year.
Plans for this week include starting dill pickles and bread and butter pickles. Attempts for later this year include caponata ans spiced rum!
