Regina Farmers’ Market welcomes 25 new vendors for 2018 summer season
“Market offers everything from healthy dog food to traditional kimchi”
from CBC News
[Baechu Kimchi] Owner Atidthan Sangsawang said baechu means “cabbage” in Korean and is also the name of a cat owned by her friend, who gave her the secret to the perfect kimchi.
“I kind of wanted to honour her traditional recipe,” said Sangsawang. “I love this whole probiotic movement and I want to be part of it and offer it to other people.”
Sangsawang said, for those who haven’t tried it, kimchi is like spicy sauerkraut. She makes two types — a traditional recipe with fish sauce, and a vegan one without.
Right now, Sangsawang said she has about 150 pounds of kimchi on the go. Since the kimchi needs time in brine, she said she will be at the farmers market throughout the summer as new batches are ready. She said it takes between seven and 14 days to ferment.
