What is Canned Kimchi?

Canned kimchi is exactly what it sounds like—kimchi that's been fermented traditionally but then packed into a can for easy storage and convenience. This method allows kimchi lovers to enjoy their favorite dish without the need for refrigeration until the can is opened. Picky Wicky's canned kimchi is designed to deliver the authentic taste of Korean kimchi made from high-quality ingredients like crisp cabbage, spicy red pepper, garlic, and a mix of flavorful seasonings.

The Origin of Kimchi

Kimchi has a storied past, originating from Korea centuries ago as a way to preserve vegetables for the winter months. Traditionally, it involves salting the vegetables and then fermenting them with a variety of spices, including chili peppers and garlic, in earthenware jars buried underground. This age-old method not only preserves the vegetables but also allows them to ferment, which creates that unique, tangy-spicy flavor kimchi is renowned for.

Canned Kimchi on the Rise

With its health benefits, such as being rich in vitamins, aiding digestion, and providing probiotics, kimchi is winning hearts worldwide.
