Hachiya or Fuyu Persimmon?

diem Nguyen says:

hi Seonkyoung. I’m a big fan of your cooking show. I was watching your instant kimchi in another video and i notice you used apricots jam, but I was wondering if it could replace the ripe persimmon you are using in this video? if so in what quantity?

posumy says:

man even the salted cabbage looks yummy

annegien schilling marthadinata says:

sometimes i feel confused with napa cabbage different with cabbage kimchi??

Maythorn says:

Oh wow! Thank you for this. I’ll try this version the next time I make kimchi if I can find persimmons. Not vegan, but I don’t really like very fishy foods so this looks like a good alternative. 🙂

J BaBa says:

A Korean friend of mine made some very spicy kimchi for me with 청양 고추 가루, but I can’t find this spicy chili powder anywhere! Will adding some capsaicin powder make the regular gochugaru spicier without giving it a strange flavor? I wanted to make this kimchi recipe of yours so badly, but I want it really HOT! Please, please help and thank you.

Martina Rizq says:

Habiba Tanvin says:

Hi! How long can you keep this kimchi before they get spoiled?

Tigitobi says:

I subscribed immediately… you are so funny! 🙂

Teresa Hobby says:

I prefer my kimchee on the tart side. How long should I ferment them? Does it take the regular 3-4 days or should I wait longer?

tomtoktak says:

Instead of Napa Cabbage can i use Romaine Lettuce as substitute ? Coz seriously here in Doha Qatar, Napa Cabbage is more expensive than beef. lol

Cheddar Cheese says:

Love your videos. Can I use apple instead of persimmon? Or another fruit?

Jordan Carnaggio says:

Is it possible to substitute the persimmon with another fruit such as mango?

catyfied says:

Can I use hot pepper paste instead of the flakes?

Marisa Hueso says:

Oh, this looks so good! I’ll have to try it sometime! are there other fruits that could substitute the persimmon?

Ilona Marie Ojoy says:

sorry unnie, may i ask if i can make a base out of chicken, or veggie broth? my husband has gout and i wanted to make this vegan version however mushroom is not good for him..

Sue Y says:

can you use any pepper flakes? cause it really hard to get the Korean pepper flake.
and the oils can you use any oil or it has to sesame seeds?
thank you.

afham azman says:

tried this, taste it, it was super good. Don’t have persimmon ended up using peach, but it is still super good.

Educated Melanin says:

I actually thought about decreasing the recipe but what I got stuck on was the garlic because you used 25 cloves … nothing else goes into 25 evenly exactly and the rice porridge measurements there are just a lot of measurements you can’t easily decrease because even halfing the recipe is too much how much I eat kimchi which isn’t that regular so for everyone being rude about it I don’t even get why she didn’t have to do the video which is the same for seonkyoung I think she’s really sweet but I didn’t get why it was a big deal to do the video when I’m sure other people have requested videos that they could have just googled smh this honestly deters me from just asking any questions if it’s going to be an issue with her or her subscribers

Ashley Thompson says:

everybody vegan and don’t want fish sauce…. I’m personally allergic……. but I want to eat everything u make
