After three years of trial and error (don't ask!), my first self-made Kimchi which didn't explode!! It's yummy and just perfect. It was a good decision to use real gochujang for it instead of just vinegar and sambal olek.

I used this recipe from Maangchi
http://www.maangchi.com/recipe/napa-cabbage-kimchi

It is a fairly easy recipe :)

Oh with me it is also hit and miss .. the last couple of tries it fermented so much the stuff exploded when I opened the bag where it was stored :s
But this time I used a plastic container and the last two days were really cold so it turned out just right.

you'll have to give me your recipe, if you don't mind! I've never had it explode (though I do normally put it in a glass bottle), it's just been really bland.

Exploding kimchi? Wow. I've actually not gotten up the nerve to try kimchi yet but we have no restaurants here & I've heard bad things about the stuff in the grocery stores. But it looks so good in the dramas!
