Kimchi originated in Korea over 3,000 years ago. The tradition of making kimchi started as a way to ferment and store vegetables during the cold winter. The main flavor notes you’ll find in kimchi include sour, spicy, and umami. The flavor will also vary depending on the vegetables you choose, the length of fermentation, and the amount of salt or sugar used. Because kimchi is a fermented dish, its most prominent flavor is typically sour.
