LOL I don't like Kimche it's too spicy for me.
The only reason I'm making sauerkraut is because the store bought varieties are pasteurized thus killing any good bacteria, and it's really easy to make. I tried a little this morning mixed in with some eggs and salmon it was very tasty.
Also I have tried some other store bought fermented foods like miso, kimche, yogurt, kombucha and kefir. Some are good and some are not so good.
@nards fermented foods just seemed like a good idea to me because you get your vegetables and your probiotics at the same time. I could be wrong about this though, some of the outrageous claims I've read on hippy websites make me a bit skeptical about the benefits of it.
