Jjigaes, or stews, are popular in Korean cuisine. The fermentation time suggested for the kimchi is relatively quick; the longer you leave it, the stronger the fermented flavour you'll get. You'll need to begin this recipe at least 3 days ahead.
Note Flowering garlic stems are available from select greengrocers. Korean chilli powder is available from Asian grocers.
