I have been going through Korea withdrawal, missing both Rebekah and the food. In an attempt to help cure that condition I made a batch of kimchi last week. I didn't hold out much hope of it being edible. I have tried making it in the past, with the finished product tasting like a salt mine. This time I found this recipe, carefully read through the reviews and tips, and took extra care when rinsing the cabbage. The result is amazing! Better yet, last week when I was out in Sorrento (the one in BC, not Italy) visiting my friend Cindy she showed me the jars she had just bought. I couldn't believe it when she pulled the Weck Jars out of her cupboard! I have been wanting some of these jars forever, and it turned out a local store was carrying them. The large one is perfect for storing kimchi.
I bought several smaller jars, too. If you saw these jars in person you would understand why. They are beautiful.
In other news, Alexandra is home and doing well. Percy was especially glad to see her. He hates me, and did that hissing thing every time I gave him food and water. I think he is still holding a grudge about the little episode with him being on my kitchen counter.
