I was hoping it was the industrial cover of Cage's "4:33", but it's gone on longer than that. Maybe it's the 12" remix.

Maybe you should follow this with the 7" version of Flipper's "Brainwash", and let the locked groove play for 15 minutes or so.

I tried making my own kimchi using a recipe that someone here posted. It’s pretty good! I probably didn’t wilt the cabbage as much as some people would but I don’t mind a kimchi with crisper cabbage leaves. The local Chinese stores only had really bland crappy red pepper powder though, but I successfully doctored it with some other spicier ingredients to fix that.

@ChukAmok, the one you posted! Thanks again! I added 2 tbsp sugar though, because I like to give anything that ferments something extra for the bacteria to eat. And a dash of TJ’s red pepper flakes and some spicy Thai-Viet shrimp-and-garlic paste to make up for the terrible Chinese red pepper powder.

Oh, that's cool. I'm guessing the first, more traditional one. I posted a second recipe from Momofuku later on that is a much simpler process, but no less rewarding.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm I k e:

Also another recipe, much simpler. I had too many mushy blueberries. They tasted good but their mushy texture was revolting. So I made blueberry-lime jam. One-fifth to one-quarter as much sugar as mushy blueberries, juice of 1/2 to 1 lime (or lemon, but IMHO lime is vastly superior), cook on the stove for 15-20 min., jar it. Not sure of the longevity though, hope it doesn’t get moldy too soon.
