The lads at Sorted Food have mixed up some really delicious seasonings in today’s video.

They can be quick and easy gifts for the holidays, or they can be placed into your everyday spice rack. It’s up to you, but either way nothing beats a good sprinkling of spices.

Traditional Kimchi (통배추김치)

Greetings everyone!

Fall is upon us and my apartment  has been full of of delicious smells from kimchi making and pickling vegetables.

This is my favorite time of year. I love turning the bounty of the summer into sour pickles, spicy kimchi and warm dishes.

This video details a very traditional cabbage kimchi, and is the recipe I make. It is so delicious and can be used for many different dishes as well as eaten on its own.

What kind of fall foods do you prepare in your kitchens? Let me know in the comments.

Natural Peach Flavored Gelatin

Greetings everyone!

Today’s video details a great way to enjoy a light dessert while we soak up the last days of summer.

It’s delicious, nutritious and is a lovely use for ripe peaches.

I would recommend substituting the sugar for equal parts honey or rapadura (sucanat).

I also recommend experimenting with other types of fruits, and discovering new combinations.

Homemade Fish Cakes

Greetings everyone.

Today I have two videos to share. They are from two of my favorite YouTube channels, and both are absolutely delicious.

Many of the fish cakes sold in Asian markets today contain unhealthy additives such as MSG, dyes, and other nasty preservatives.

These recipes show how to make fish cakes using real fish and healthy ingredients. Enjoy.

さつま揚げ (satsuma-age) are a fish cake from Kagoshima, Japan. They are used in various stews and hotpots, or eaten as a snack. They have a lovely flavor and texture and are also a great way to incorporate fish into the diet.

어묵 (eomuk) are fish cakes from South Korea. Many believe they were created to mimic the Japanese fish cakes many centuries ago. They are delicious and like satsuma-age, they are great in soups or just as a snack.

화전 Sweet Edible Flower Cakes

Greetings  Everyone! Today’s video is something a little different, and something I absolutely adore.

The subject of edible flowers has always intrigued me, and I’m looking forward to trying out this lovely recipe.

It is also very adaptable, as the list of edible flowers is quite extensive. Try serving these at a bridal shower, or even just with afternoon tea. They’ll add an elegant and whimsical touch to any occasion.

I would recommend a sprinkling of Lavender buds with a drizzle of honey instead of the simple syrup.
