Kimchi

I’ve had a slow-cooker recipe for bulgogi that I’ve been wanting to try, so we decided to make some kimchi to go with it.  We got out the Perfect Pickler, and found a recipe from Sandor Katz to follow.  He warned to check the fish sauce to make sure it doesn’t have preservatives.  It looked like nothing was happening for days (no obvious bubbling), and that’s when we realized that the chili paste we used did have preservatives in it.  We left it out on the counter anyway, and when I made the bulgogi, I noticed that the liquid had spewed out of the Perfect Pickler a little, which was a good sign.  Even with the preservatives, it made a yummy Korean condiment to our bulgogi and sesame spinach.
