Kim chi comes in many forms in Korea Chinese cabbage being among the most popular
but it is made with many different vegetables and a touch of sugar really helps the flavor come out. I lived in Japan for two years with a Korean mamasan for a land lady and ate tons of her Kim Chi now I make my own and love it

Here's one kimchi recipe I have made before and like.
That recipe looks great. I am going to try it. I noticed your in MA. Where is there a Korean market?

There is a Korean market in Union Sq. in Somerville. I forget the name, though.

All the Super 88's carry Korean stuff.

there is a huge Korean superstore, Super H Mart, opening this fall in Burlington

Andy

Someone at Chowhound said it'll be located behind the Burlington Market Basket in the old Decathlon/La-Z Boy building.

I have no idea where that is, but will definitely be finding out!

Thanks, Jen. It's near the Burlington Mall on Middlesex Turnpike. There is an exit off Rt.128 (I 95) for the Middlesex Turnpike near the Rt. 3 interchange.

That's a pretty high rent district for a Korean market. The other ethnic markets are on the other side of town.

"H Mart, a chain of Korean and Asian supermarkets with a devoted following, plans to enter the region with a 51,000-square-foot superstore in Burlington, near Route 128 and the Burlington Mall."

Thanks, Jen. I'm looking forward to their being there. Burlington is close and I know it well. I lived there for 18 years. My daughter lives there now and I'm going to have to find out why she didn't tell me about it!
