I think it only makes sense for cabbage to have some kind of standing in Germany. I mean, sauerkraut is pickled cabbage after all. Never tried kimchi before? Here’s a little information from Wikipedia –

Kimchi (English pronunciation: /ˈkɪmtʃi/, from Korean: 김치; gimchi [kim.tɕʰi]), a staple in Korean cuisine, is a traditional banchan (side dish) made from salted and fermented vegetables, most commonly napa cabbages and Korean radishes, with a variety of seasonings including gochutgaru (chili powder), scallions, garlics, ginger, and jeotgal (salted seafood) among others.[1]

A 2003 article in the Los Angeles Times said that South Koreans consume 40 pounds (18 kg) of kimchi per person annually.[54] A 2015 book cited a 2011 source that said that adult Koreans eat from 50 grams (0.11 lb) to 200 grams (0.44 lb) of kimchi a day.[55]

Some credit Korea’s industrious energy as a people, and their nation’s rapid economic growth, in part to eating the dish.[35] It is is made of various vegetables and contains a high concentration of dietary fiber,[56][57] while being low in calories. One serving also provides over 50% of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C and carotene

During the 2003 SARS outbreak in Asia, many people believed that it could protect against infection. While there was no scientific evidence to support this belief, kimchi sales rose by 40%.[63][54]

Let’s have a look.
