Kimchi is fermented cabbage, and there are dozens of varieties. The kind that I'll be making is standard napa cabbage kimchi.
It's not that difficult to make, as long as you're willing to put in the time. It can take several days to properly ferment, so you'll want to make it in advance before you're planning to serve it at your next Korean meal.
In this video I make kimchi and share it with my mom. She's been exposed to a lot of Korean food before, and already likes kimchi.
I've also included the recipe below this video. Check it out~!
