Welcome to Ginger's Pantry

You can be sure that when you buy our ferments, what you are eating or drinking is part of an important food movement; a return to traditions - to living foods and small batch real food and drinks.

We are wild fermenters in a largely homogenised world. We don't water down, force carbonate or add starter cultures. Our choices have

never been for convenience; we are slow fermenters and our most expensive ingredient is time.

Fun fact about kimchi

Q. If any whitish film forms on top of the Kimchi that is being refrigerated, is it still okay to eat it?

A. According to the research from the World Institute of Kimchi, the whitish film is not toxic, and the Kimchi can be eaten if the film is removed and then it is rinsed or cooked. Still, the film may quicken the softening of Kimchi, so you'd better skim it off immediately.

Q. Then, how should I refrigerate it?

A. 1) Before refrigerating Kimchi, press it down so that the juice will cover most of the Kimchi.

2) For better storage, you can cover the Kimchi with a few large cabbage leaves or plastic wrap to avoid direct contact with air.

3) When you put cabbage Kimchi in a container, arrange it so that the cut cross-section of it faces upward. This prevents the Kimchi seasonings from falling out and thus maintains its taste.

Q.If a lady next door gives me some of the cabbage Kimchi that she has made today, when am I supposed to put it in the refrigerator?

A. Kimchi that has been freshly made will be tastier and healthier if it is let mature for one or two days before being refrigerated. If it is refrigerated right away without the maturing process, lactobacilli are not sufficiently generated, thus diminishing its taste. This will also prevent proper destruction of food pathogens.

Welcome to Gingers Pantry

Hello! My name is Hyun Ju Yun & I'm also known as Ginger!

I personally make every jar of kimchi from scratch, I even cut the vegetables myself!

I believe my Kimchi is the best you can find in New Zealand because we make it the proper Korean way.

I know what makes a good Kimchi, as my mother was a Kimchi master in my home town in Korea when she was running a restaurant.

I would like to introduce you to many types of fermented product with natural ingredients & at a reasonable price.

I love fermented food because it doesn't use much energy to produce and it's healthy for you. It is good for you and for this beautiful planet.

Testimonials

Being a vegetarian there are not that many places where you can buy vegan Kimchi. While searching online I found Ginger’s Pantry. Read about their story and how their products are made with authenticity. I bought Original Cabbage Kimchi and Cauliflower one. It was delivered with utmost care within few days time. Upon tasting I could sense the freshness of Cabbage kimchi. Crunchy, juicy and so delicious 😋 Cauliflower kimchi is first time trying and it didn’t disappoint. I use these in my sandwiches, toasties, add in soup, fried rice and in stir fried veggies. So happy with my purchase. Will order again. Highly recommend. Thank you Ginger’s Pantry for making Vegan Kimchi 😍

BEST KIMCHI IN NZ

Lissa MoralejoonAug 08, 2023

This is hands down the best kimchi I’ve had. The balance of spice, acid & umami is a cabbagey symphony. This is some serious voodoo magic. It’s so moreish, our 450gm jar didn’t last a week. BUY BUY BUY!!!

Spicy Cabbage Kimchi

I am a European Kiwi, born in Fiji where I developed a taste for all things Spicy. I have eaten Sauerkraut for many years but I discovered Kimchi two years ago. I tried several brands but have found Ginger’s Spicy Kimchi to be the best I have tasted and have placed a number of orders so far.

I’ve been wanting to try white kimchi for ages and got so excited to see this available, it’s great for days when I don’t feel like something that spicy but want something sour to cut through a cheesy dish. The sweetness is subtle and a nice addition, it’s great on own or mixed into a bunch of dishes.

Delicious and Light Lisa on Jul 06, 2023

Hi,Picked up your Kimchi from the markets today. It was full of life. Such an amazing flavor I have been eating it all day. Great quality and beautiful texture. Best I have had in NZ :) Thanks, Steve

Red cabbage and Green cabbage kimchiI started with a sample of 4 kimchi, from this i chose red and green cabbage as my favourites. I used to buy from the supermarket, but now I'm 100% sold on Gingers Pantry. I recommend you buy as well.
