Kombu in kimchi?

Does Kombu (kelp) go well in kimchi? I have some kombu left over from making miso soup this morning and I was wondering if I chop it up real fine and put it in my kimchi vat (which I'm making after breakfast) would it be okay, or would everything go all slimy?

That's an interesting question. It could be worth the experiment. Kimchi after fermentation is kind of slimy anyway. I think it will probably work. There are thousands of versions of kimchi, at least as many styles as Italians have of pasta. Korea, being a peninsula in the Sea of Japan, you have to figure that someone has tried it before.
