How to make Korean White Kimchi

Korean White Kimchi Recipe – Kimchi, also spelled gimchi or kimchee, is a traditional Korean fermented dish made of some select vegetables with varied seasonings, most commonly referring to the spicy baechu variety. Kimchi is the most common Korean banchan, or side dish, eaten with rice along with other banchan dishes. Kimchi is also a common ingredient and cooked with other ingredients to make dishes such as kimchi stew (kimchi jjigae) and kimchi fried rice (kimchi bokkeumbap). Kimchi often tastes better with age

Korean White Kimchi, this type of kimchi is not as common as the spicy variety and is a delicacy of Korea’s fiercely independent northern provinces. Fresh pear gives this variety of kimchi a tart, mild flavor that has little in common with the tear-inducing red chili kimchi found throughout the rest of the country.
