Leek Kimchi

Leek kimchi is popular in the Cholla and Kyongsang Provinces. It is a good appetite stimulant in summer with its pungent and unique flavor and taste. Salting is done not with salt but with anchovy juice. Gentle working is a necessity because leek can smell of green more easily than other vegetables do. The kimchi goes well with smoked or roasted meats.
