I made kimchi today. Since I moved to America, I have made kimchi a lot in my life. Usually, I bought kimchi from the store. There are not many choices in America. I started to make it by myself. A lonesome foreign life made me miss home food.
It takes a lot of work. Preparing ingredients, cutting, salt it, rinse, seasoning, and waiting. I feel that making kimchi is a kind of magic. Temperature and ingredients affect the taste. Every time I try something different, I feel like a wizard. After three days, I will open my kimchi jar. I am looking forward to how it will taste this time.
