Kimchi Earthen Jars In Courtyard Of Korean House

Earthen Jars

There are many earthen jars in the courtyard of traditional houses in Seoul Namsangol Hanok Village. These jars are for storing kimchi which is the favorite dish for Koreans.

Kimchi must be preserved at appropriate temperature in order to maintain its freshness and delicious taste. In the old times, kimchi had to be kept in different locations during different seasons. During warm summer, kimchi was placed in well or stream. On the other hand it was buried under ground during chilly winter.

Based on the information of Pulmuone Kimchi Museum which is located in COEX Mall in Seoul, in addition to vitamin A and C kimchi is also rich in minerals such as iron, calcium and phosphorus.
