DOs

•   Wear gloves when mixing the chili paste.

•   Store kimchi in a cool, dark place— the fridge is the best.

•  Make kimchi using different vegetables using the same procedure.

DON’Ts

•  Never use a reactive metal container to store kimchi. Use glass, porcelain, or stainless steel instead.

•  FYI, plastic will be permanently stained by the chili.
