Anyone for kimchi or sauerkraut?

Updated: Mar 31, 2020

Earlier on in the year I wrote a blog about the food trends for 2017 and one of them was fermented foods such as kimchi or sauerkraut.

I am assuming most people know what sauerkraut is and what about kimchi?

Kimchi is a staple in Korean cuisine, it is made from salted and fermented vegetables, most commonly Chinese Cabbage with a variety of seasonings including chilli powder, spring onions, garlic, sometimes, salted fish and ginger.  Traditionally kimchi  was stored underground in jars to keep cool, and unfrozen during the winter months.

Since, I have heard so much about fermented foods in general I thought I would write again about the popularity and more importantly why should you try eating more of these foods.
