Searched this recipe out while looking for ideas for a gift basket of homemade goodies for my parents for Valentines day! My step-father is retired Army, and has always loved Kimchi. Both him and my Mother are big Foodies, and I thought this would be an interesting surprise for them! The first try I made, I could not find the Korean chili powder, so I used regular, mixed with some Siracha. It was insanely hot, but John is still flipping out on how wonderful it is! For my second attempt, I put a message on facebook on where to find the correct chili powder, and a chef that I am friends with told me where it was locally. The second attempt is wonderful also!!
On a side note, Dr.Oz (tv personality/doctor), had a show where he was giving advice to help non-morning people wake up. He called it the "kimchi kick-start", and advised to eat a few forkfulls in the morning in order to get you raring to go!
