This was my first introduction to making kimchi,
along with reading Sandor Kratz's book Wild Fermentation
I ended up with a delicious mix; have forgotten exactly what it contained, but this is such great reading.
may it inspire you to try making it, if you never have,
or to imagine new combinations of flavours.
to your good health!
Maybe someone else wants to post a fave. link on cultured veg. in this thread. I'm sure a lot of people are interested, now or later. . .
