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.
