Kimchi is the national food of Korea and a keystone of Korean
culture. Ask anyone on the streets of Korea if they believe in kimchi
power and you’ll always get a big smile.

The history of kimchi
traces back early as 3000 years ago when the ancients had to preserve
and store their autumn harvest of vegetables in order to survive the
winter. Kimchi was prepared in early winter and stored below ground in
large kimchi pots and kept the whole community fed till spring. Made
from cabbage, radishes, cucumber, eggplant, radish greens, and fruit,
kimchi could be found in endless varieties depending on the region of
Korea it was made. Even fish or squid kimchi could be found along the
coastline of the south. These ingredients were pickled in a mixture of
coarse salt, chili, ginger, garlic, fish sauce, and water and gave
kimchi its distinct, spicy flavor.

Kimchi could be eaten right out
of the pot as the main course or as an ingredient in hot dishes such as
kimchi stew. I’m sure a nice hot bowl of kimchi stew was very welcome
during those cold, gray winter months in Old Korea.
