Bok Choy Tips Kimchi

If you are a kimchi addict, you may want to try this untraditional kimchi made from bok choy tips! It has a slightly bitter taste and a crunch that goes so well with any meal, but especially the fatty greasy kind like Korean BBQ or burgers. This kimchi is on the drier side because it does not use rice vinegar or gochujang in the marinade, just gochugaru. Daikon, carrot, and ginger add even more satisfying crunch and bite. Most kimchis come together within a month (sitting at room temp for a few days before moving to the fridge for a longer ferment to develop flavor), so make sure to prep this in advance!
