Imported - Kimchi

Kimchi is a traditional Korean dish of fermented chili peppers and vegetables, usually based on Chinese cabbage. The word's archaic pronunciation was chim-chae, meaning "steeped/ submerged vegetable". However, since the pronunciation's drastic change, kimchi is no longer associated with its original Hanja.

In Korea, kimchi is served with most regular meals but is also used as an ingredient in cooking, including kimchi jjigae (kimchi soup), kimchi bokkeumbap (kimchi fried rice), and other dishes.

Kimchi has been cited by Health Magazine as one of the world's five "healthiest foods", with the claim that it is rich in vitamins, aids digestion, and may even prevent cancer. The health properties of kimchi are due to a variety of factors. Kimchi is usually made with cabbage, onions, and garlic, all of which have well-known health benefits. Kimchi also has active and beneficial bacterial cultures, like yogurt. Lastly, kimchi contains liberal quantities of hot pepper, which has been suggested to have health benefits as well.
