Have you ever made kimchi? It's the Korean version of cultured vegetables, very distintive, very spicy.

The blog e*starLA chronicles a class in LA AND manages to make KimChi accessible to me via ChiliMango comparisions. Click on this post's title to see the entry.
This is just the weekend to find persimmons in our local farmers markets!
