When you're craving Kimchi
When traveling abroad, Yangban Kimchi has become a must-carry item for many Koreans - especially the older generation who can't go a few days without Kimchi.
This Kimchi comes in a can - so it's easy to take anywhere. But, more importantly, it tastes good - yes, even to Korean standards! That's why it's become a best-seller in Korea.
So what does it taste like? If you're familiar with Korean cuisine, the best comparison is Kimchi found in Kimchi Jjigae. The Kimchi is aged (slightly sour), not too spicy and the leaves have a good crunch. Very easy for first-timers too. There is also leftover kimchi liquid in the can - which tastes good by itself or use it to make Kimchi Fried Rice.
If you don't have a Korean mart nearby, this works well as emergency Kimchi!
- Perfect as emergency kimchi - when there's no Korean mart in sight!

Fresh vs. Aged Kimchi
There's two types of Koreans - those that prefer Fresh Kimchi and those that prefer Aged Kimchi! Fresh Kimchi has bold flavors and a crunchy texture. You'll taste the spicy, smoky heat from the gochugaru, the garlick-y kick and the crisp snap of the cabbage leaves. But as Kimchi ferments over days and weeks, it begins to develop a more tangy, slighty-sour taste (similar to Sauerkraut). The natural water inside the cabbage seeps out and creates a pool of kimchi liquid - which is amazing to cook with. This tangy funk transforms into deep, layered flavor when cooked in broths or stir-fried with oil.
Yangban Kimchi is aged and has a slightly tangy, sour taste - which makes it perfect for Kimchi Fried Rice!
Here's an easy recipe to follow at home.
A: Yes, there are no animal-based ingredients in this.
