 What the hell is Camchi?

  • According to Courtney Hall, a WGN news anchor, "Camchi is kimchi made by Cam."
  • Camchi could have started as a spelling error. And why not? As you surf around this site you will probably find a bunch of them.
  • Camchi might just have been born from a Pickle of the Month Club. I would receive all these awesome pickles, but always thirsted for something more. I found it when I first tasted kimchi. That Korean spicy, pickley, super condiment was it at last.
  • Camchi also could have started out of straight up boredom. Hopefully we'll never have to put these kimchi jars in the closet next to my karate yellow belt, juggling balls, soda machine, and harmonica.
  • Camchi totally could have started out from misinformation. "Dude, I heard if you make kimchi out of vegetables from local farms, it makes you better at basketball!" This is certainly not true, and I am willing to prove this is false at any point of any day.

 

Maybe if we put it all together Keyser Söze style, it will all make sense:

Camchi is kimchi made by Cam which is a Korean spicy, pickley, super condiment that features vegetables from local farms.

Yeah, that's nice.

Tish & Jimmy Waron   Big props to Tish and Jimmy. That's my mom and brother. They couldn't be more supportive. Jimmy is ready to swim in a pool of kimchi. Then there's my mom who would like it less spicy and more bland, like a boiled Fig Newton.

HBFC/SDC   Big props to HBFC/SDC. Giving me the chance and the platform to make this whole thing happen is a big damn deal. Could not be here without y'all. They also house a lot of taste testers that, thus far, have been very willing to try the next weird idea I throw together. Give them a gander:  HBFC  &  SDC

Last, But Definitely Not Least, The Farmers   Big props to all the farmers. They are what Camchi is really all about. When it comes to the farmers, much love and respect goes into the fields, into the friendship, and then into the jars. I take great pride in working hard to showcase their hard work.
