Sweet Potato Leafstock Kimchi

Sweet potato leafstock kimchi is usually made in summer when there is enough supply of the material, with young scallions as one of its main ingredients. Although peeling the stocks is a tedious job, the kimchi does give us a fresh taste in the hot summer with its green scallions and sweet potato leafstocks.
