Homemade Kim-chi, make your own test and style. The Kim-chi can keep for at least 6 - 12 months probably longer. If it becomes to sour to eat on its own use the Kim-chi to make soups or stews as the soured Kim-chi will add more flavor to these dishes. It is common in South Korea to make soups and stews with older Kim-chi. It can be eaten raw as a side-dish, or added to soups and other Korean dishes.
