Editors Review

Perilla kimchi is another simple kimchi recipe that does not need any time to soak in a brine like normal kimchi and it does not need very long to ferment. So even though it called kimchi, it is almost like a daily side dish. This uniquely flavored kimchi tastes great both when it is fresh and fermented. If you love kimchi and want something different, try this one.
