Kimchi is a traditional Korean side dish made by fermenting vegetables. This week on the Local Food

Report, Elspeth talks with  Holly North of Woods Hole about how she got hooked on kimchi and how she makes it. Holly walks Elspeth through the process of putting together a quick cucumber kimchi and talks about the flavors involved in a perfect dish—everything from garlic to chiles to seafood.

You can find Holly North's recipe for Hot & Spicy Cucumber Kimchi on Elspeth's blog, Diary of a Locavore, where you can also find links to learn more about the digestive benefits of lacto-fermented foods and the history of kimchi.
