How to Make Apple Kimchi
When making apple kimchi you can choose your favorite type or types of apple. Jen Naylor recommends looking for a firm texture and flavors of sweetness and tartness. For her demonstration, Jen used Evercrisp and Wildtwist. This kimchi can be enjoyed right away or allowed to ferment. Jen recommends eating it fresh and serving on top of fried eggs, hotdogs or brats.
