Lucky man if you have fresh kimchi in the fridge. So when the kimichi is on it's last leg, have you tried making a soup out of it? maybe I'm singing to the choir...are you of korean descent? If not, google kimchi chigae. You can substitute the pork for beef and possibly use bone broth. I have to stop talking about this, it's causing my korean food cravings to kick in.
What is efficient microbes? what brand do you use?
