Laurie made some excellent kimchee a few months back, but it had a limited shelf life. I threw it on the compost pile, wondering whether all the pepper would discourage worms and other decomposers. It turns out that for some reason soldier fly larvae like this one LOVE it. I really need to get a close-up of the pattern on the skin of a clean one of these. It's quite beautiful, actually.
