Kimchi: Like Sauerkraut, But Spicy

I have now sampled kimchi: Korea's version of sauerkraut. I rather like sauerkraut: Germany's version of kimchi. Kimchi is spicier. And redder.

My wife and #3 daughter brought some kimchi home with them from Soo Bahk Do class tonight. My daughter was - impressed? - that I took a look at it, and ate the entire sample: maybe two or three tablespoons-worth.

My eyes started watering about the same time that she was explaining that she'd just touched some to her tongue.

I think my method allows me to experience it more completely.

And, my sinuses seem to be more open now.

Bit spicy eh lol. I had a similar experience when I was about 3 years old and my older brother gave me a table spook full of english mustard and said its nice. I guzzled it all back then waited a fwe seconds then screamed the place down much to the laughter from my brother.

Just a bit. That time delay in spices makes them - interesting. ;)
