I am going to show you my sun dried chillies today.
They have been dried on my garden table for a few days under the hot sun!!
It is very common in Korea to dry chillies under the scorching sun in summer.
I must say that you could make kimchi without red chillies.
In fact, there are lots of variations of kimchi without red chillies.
However, it is quite a main characteristic of kimchi being RED AND HOT with chillies.
After drying these chillies, I am going to crush them into powder for my precious kimchi.
So please pray for more sunshine here in Brighton…
