Should you make or buy kimchi?

Let’s face it: it takes a long time to make kimchi. Plus, it’s a lot of work. You need many different ingredients, and the process can be messy and smelly. Then again, kimchi smells, so it would make sense that it would smell as you’re making it.

I grew up in a home where my family made kimchi. Now, we just buy it at a local Korean grocery store. It’s easier. It’s quicker. It’s simpler. We just go to our local Hmart to get our kimchi.

How about you?

I’m Dr. Joseph Chaiwhan Kim and I love eating kimchi.
