Regular price ₱350.00

Delivery calculated at checkout.

A throwback to those days when everybody had time to watch CLOY, this kimchi marks the days when we were finally able to source produce from our farmers in Mountain Province during the ECQ, so we like this kimchi a lot. Sentimental reasons aside, this kimchi uses only organic highlands produce and made the traditional way using Korean pepper porridge. Because this kimchi is vegan and does not use fish sauce, we added some organic kombu to amp up the umami before being fermented for much of the lockdown, deepening the flavors while retaining a crisp freshness. 

Ingredients: Organic highlands wombok, radishes, and carrots, Korean pepper flakes, rice flour, soy sauce, kombu, onions, ginger, and garlic.  

This product is vegan.

Each jar is 16 oz.

Storage: Keep refrigerated. 

About fermented foods: 

One of the best ways to improve our immune system and build resistance is through the regular intake of lacto-fermented foods. Fermentation is a time-honoured technique that prolongs the shelf life of highly perishable but highly beneficial foods like fruits and vegetables through the production of lactic acid bacteria with the absence of oxygen. It arrests spoilage and creates an acidic environment that is inhospitable to toxins and pathogens, while also improving the nutrient profile of foods.
