Old Kimchi Where to Find ?

Sounds wrong I know but I am looking for older Kimchi in Manhattan to make Kimchi Fried Rice and one of the tips was to use older kimchi. Any help will be appreciated.

  1. Silly you! just buy fresh one and store in refrigerator couple weeeks (or more). now you'll have old kim chi. BTW my family had kim chi (we called it kim chee) business and they still have a thriving business selling and making it. You can actually allow kim chi to age until it is almost sour tasting and use it in chigae soup whip tastes so delicious. Esp. on cold winter days.

      I knew my greediness would make me sound off. As JungmMann guessed it is my impatience to wait but I will try the kim chi (kim chee) with oysters. Thanks

      1. The Mayor is right, though I think kimchi is ripe enough to start using in pajun, fried rice or dubu kimchi after a week.. And if you're impatient, the kimchi with oysters sours much more quickly than the kimchi without.
