LOL - yes, I'd use that method except for the fact that it always seems to smell the same.

I really hate tossing it out after awhile, especially since regular commericial pickle products seem to last forever, but they're suspended in the pickle brine, where Kimchee is more of a solid. That's where I get iffy about its storage life.

We buy the huge jar of it (64 oz?) and keep it for weeks. I would say that it probably keeps for quite a long time -- as in months.

Yeah. There is so much salt to keep it preserved that I think an opened jar wont ever really go "rancid" unless you left it out in a warm room for months or something.

Just keep the opened jar closed in the fridge and it should be okay for a good long time!

Though you may not be able to tell by taste or smell if it's rancid or not!
