If you love authentic Korean cuisine, you'll want to try your hand at creating your own kimchi; it's not as complicated or time-consuming as you might think. Kimchi is a fermented dish, the more it ages the better it tastes, likewise with the sugar. Use a persimmon in place of the apple, if you prefer. If you want to serve it the very next day, don't refrigerate.
Brownie Batter Dip (aka Chocolate Hummus)
At first I was skeptical of 'dessert' hummus. Then I tried some. I was hooked. It is awesome on apples, strawberries, pretzels and lots of other things.
