Charles, I just finished my second batch ( 1 gallon each) of kimchi, which has been great and very addictive. In reading through the wild fermentation book again, I noticed another kimchi recipe, similar to the regular, but without the cabbage and lots of root vegetables, including sunchokes. I am making a batch of the root kimchi this week. If you are interested in the recipe, I can post it for you.

Yes, often with a much stronger & more complex flavor.
Some aspects of sauerkraut, salsa, and Worcestershire. That is, the underlying fermented cabbage flavor can have a lot of vegetable, spice, and fermented fish aspects layered over it.
