KIMCHI

 Talking to Grandson Tom the other day he mentioned that he had just had a cheese and Kimchi toastie.

"What on earth is Kimchi" I said.

"Oh,  haven't you ever had Kimchi" he said as though I was a moron. lol

"No said I, what is it?"

Well he said "It's a kind of pickled cabbage and its delicious" I'll send you some to try.

So, true to his word, this morning a  package came and this is it.


Willow was as usual laying on the desk in the way so I  have included her two back feet, more interesting than just a little tin anyway.

I realised as soon as I looked at the invoice why we haven't had anything to do with Kimchi before.
This little tin cost £5.99

Let's hope we like it. lol

  1. I will be interested to hear your comments on it. I have had sauerkraut but not kimchi.

  2. I'm waiting for your review! Our daughter-in-law loves it, but it sounds awful to me.

  3. I thought Willow's feet were furry parsnips. Delicious with Kimchi.

    I confess, I have never tried Kimchi either. Young Tom has developed exotic tastes.

  5. Enjoy! I haven't had it either, I'm sure my youngest son will have eaten it though, he often sends me photos of food he's eating and says you should try this Mother.

  6. I have never seen any or tasted any but my other phone before I got this one kimchi was the word I said to take photos so I would walk around up and down the streets and then store saying kimchi out loud and people would stare at me. Now I know what it is but not what it taste like did it taste kind of like sauerkraut

  7. It's traditional to have with Korean cuisine. Not sure about combining it with a cheese sandwich, though. Really good on rice or noodles.

  8. It's not something I've ever tried either. I hope you enjoy it, especially at that price.

  9. Kimchi. Great stuff. I love it (there are lots of kinds), but it might be an acquired taste to people unaccustomed to eating fermented food. Once you get the taste there will be no holding you back;next it will be kombucha, kefir, and sourdough bread! Enjoy. xxx F (Mr T says tell Rowan 'it isn't really food, its just something humans put on their plates to keep cats away from the meat'.)

  10. All Kimchi is spicy (it's a Korean side dish) as that's the nature of what it is and I don't care for "spicy"... but my husband and youngest daughter love it. I usually just make my own fermented cabbage and forego the spices... and I like it much better. Enjoy!! ~Andrea xoxo

  11. I didn't realize kimchi was an actual product. I have only heard of it as a phrase to use to take a selfie on your phone. Waiting to hear if you like it or not

  12. Young Tom is a world traveler! Never thought of putting kimchi on a cheese sandwich. I love Korean food and I also like spicy, but kimchi isn't one of my favorite tastes. Ok in small amounts as a condiment mixed with other stuff, but not in large quantities!
    That grandson is going to give you an education!
