First, what is it? Wikipedia says, "Kimchi, a staple in Korean cuisine, is a traditional side dish of salted and fermented vegetables, such as napa cabbage and Korean radish, made with a widely varying selection of seasonings including gochugaru, spring onions, garlic, ginger, and jeotgal, etc. It is also used in a variety of soups."
It can be seriously spicy or mild depending on what you choose to purchase. I'm a wimp so I opted for the most mild I could find. I tried it as it is and I knew instantly that wasn't going to work for me! Yuk! I kept telling myself 'it's good for, it's good for you' ... yeah well, I didn't care. But, fermented foods, like kimchi, are great for the gut! I started looking for recipes I felt I could enjoy. I started with Kimchi Fried Rice and I'll have to admit, it was yummy!
