Kimjang Season Is Back Again!

November 22, 2011


Yay, Kimjang season is back again!

In Korea, people often set aside an entire day where the whole family helps out in making huge amounts of kimchi to last for most of the year. We call that event – “kimjang”.

It’s been a year since our first post about kimchi last year. And just like last year about at this time, all the Korean shows on SBS and MBC are showing episodes of the crazy kimjang season in Korea. The radish, napa cabbage, pepper powder and garlic are selling like hotcakes they say. They say the price of the veggies are more reasonably priced this year, but pepper powder is twice as expensive as last year.

Korean ahjummas (ladies) always tell the younger generation that “You need to make sure to do your kimjang between November 15- December 5. If you do it later than that, your kimchi will not be as tasty.”

So if you are planning on doing kimjang (however little it may be), be sure to make plans ahead of time and do it during those dates, following the Korean tradition! We’ll be getting our cabbage and radish this week to make our kimjang as well.

Happy kimjang season, everyone! 😉

      It is so great that your brother likes kimchi! 😉 Sadly, our Mia does not like spicy food. She always asks for it and then she walks away after sniffing at it. So no, she is not too fond of kimchi. But I’ve seen stories about cats loving kimchi on Korean tv. 😉 All our kitties are crazy about kim (nori) though. Yes, I will send her your love and a big hug!!! Thank you!!! 😉

    Although I love the photo of your delicious kimjang, nothing can compare with the photo of your darling kitty, Mia!
