Straight out of the bag, this kimchi isn't as complex, spicy or pungent as what you might buy at a Korean store or make at home, but I've been enjoying it in cooked dishes like stews and stir-fries. And for those hesitant about kimchi, the less aggressive odor and taste can even be preferable. (My husband, a notorious kimchi-hater, has actually liked the dishes I've made with the Trader Joe's kimchi.)
