Oh Hell Yeah

This is what I like to call a Flaming Red Jar of Win--aka home made kimchi. It is finally done, and it is truly amazing that you can start out with a huge head of cabbage, and end up with a tiny jar (well, not really tiny) of spicy hot awesomeness. Tart, complex flavor (but no sweetness at all), a bit smokey, and lovely, lovely spiciness.

The color of the cabbage suffered a bit, probably because I kept opening up the container I was fermenting it in to try it out. Oxygen tends to make things look drag. But stuffed into an old pasta sauce jar surrounded by the bright red brine, I think it looks pretty great.

    that is all.
