Kimchi Demonstration

KimchiThe Haliburton County Farmers’ Market welcomes Carolyn Langdon to the Carnarvon Market location on Friday, October 11th, between 1 p.m. – 5  p,m.

Carolyn will be demonstrating the art of making Kimchi, a traditional Korean delicacy in which the fermenting process is as enticing as the finished dish.

Also spelled kimchee or gimchi, it’s a traditional fermented Korean side dish made of vegetables with a variety of seasonings. It is often described as “spicy” or “sour”.  In traditional preparation, Kimchi was often allowed to ferment underground in jars for months at a time. It is Korea’s national dish, and there are hundreds of varieties made with a main vegetable ingredient such as napa cabbage, radish, scallion, or cucumber.
