How to Store Kimchi?
Homemade kimchi is super easy to store. Just add it to a sealed glass jar or container and transfer it to the refrigerator. The refrigerator slows down the fermentation process to make it last longer (up to six months when stored properly).
Kimchi can also be frozen in plastic bags or freezer-safe airtight containers. Divide into several portions and store in the freezer.
