Old(more than 6 months) Kimchee ideas?

jeff55432 | May 6, 2013 06:30 PM

I bough a big jug of Kimchee in December and used a little bit of it, and it got lost way in the back of the fridge. I found it today, opened it up and *WOAH*.......the smell almost knocked me over.

Is it still safe to eat? (I would really hate to throw it away as I spent $20 for it). And if so, I imagine the flavor (based on the smell) would be quite pungent. I read somewhere that old Kimchi makes a good stock base for soup, so that is what I plan on doing with it. Anyone ever try this? Any other ideas for it's use?
