Salty Cabbage introduces
Vancouver’s premium handmade Salty Cabbage Kimchi

 

My Review of Salty Cabbage Kimchi

I’d like to say that I’ve had kimchi and didn’t like the taste but the truth of the matter is that unbeknownst to me the big vat that you buy at T&T is a poor example of what “real” kimchi tastes like.  So when I was invited to the launch of Salty Cabbage Kimchi products, I was more than pleasantly surprised that I did like the taste of kimchi. Salty Cabbage has one not so secret ingredient that makes their kimchi outstanding – freshness and it doesn’t have that vinegar taste that a lot of pickled vegetables have.

From that very first bite you get the taste of cabbage fermented with garlic and ginger mixed with a little apple and pear for sweetness (the founder, Kailyn Chun doesn’t like to use refined sugar). And of course, chili is added for spiciness. Ph levels are also measured for each batch and if they are deemed to be too high or too low, then Kailyn deems them unfit for human consumption.

But more than just sampling Salty Cabbage products straight out of jar at the media launch party, there was an array of food that demonstrated the versatility of kimchi from scones, sushi, tacos to juice and chocolates. Yes, you heard me right. Kimchi juice which tastes a like kimchi flavoured kombucha is used to produce a chocolate that is a little sweet, a little sour with a hint of heat (which incidentally is how most people describe me!).

Salty Cabbage kimchi comes fermented and if you prefer more of a sour flavour, then leave it out for a few more days.  Otherwise, it is best to refrigerate immediate so that you slow down the fermenting process.  This product is best eaten before three months, although at six months it is still edible but will have more of a sour flavour.

About Salty Cabbage

The history of kimchi stretches back over 2000 years and while it’s best-known as an essential of Korean cuisine, it’s also found fans all over the world as the perfect complement to familiar dishes like BBQ, soups, cheeses, and salads.

Salty Cabbage is proud to introduce Vancouver’s premium kimchi, now available at retail, online, and in delicious dishes at a number of Vancouver restaurants. Made by hand using the freshest ingredients, Salty Cabbage offers vegan and vegetarian-friendly options, all of which are gluten-free and made without preservatives. Along with adding an umami kick to almost any dish, Salty Cabbage offers a wide range of probiotic benefits to support gut health.

The Salty Cabbage story starts on Denman St. where founder Kailyn Chun worked at Ma Dang Goul Korean restaurant, where she spent her days making kimchi which slowly built a fan base who would drive from across the Lower Mainland to buy kimchi to take home with them. The idea of turning this into a business grew and she worked with Glasfurd & Walker to create a brand and packaging which would tell the story of Salty Cabbage and differentiate it from the factory-made products which dotted the shelves of supermarkets around the city.

Salty Cabbage currently offers four different kimchi options: Classic, Classic Vegan, Radish, and White, each made using homestyle Korean techniques and recipes. Salty Cabbage kimichi is featured on the menus at Vancouver restaurants like Sing Sing Beer Bar, Blackbird Public House, and Rice Burger and is currently available at select retailers including Meinhardt Fine Foods and West Wood Organic. It can be ordered online through www.saltycabbage.com  and Uber Eats, and Salty Cabbage will also be sold at the Hastings Park Farmers Market this Winter.
