Recipe Ingredients for Kimchi

1 head green cabbage
4 oz red chili paste
1/2 T salt
1 t ground ginger
1 1/2 T fish sauce
2 T sugar
1/2 yellow onion
2 cloves garlic

Recipe Directions for Kimchi

  1. Cut the cabbages in half lengthwise and trim the ends. Rinse and cut into pieces about 2 inch square. Place the cabbage into large resealable bags and sprinkle salt on the leaves so they are evenly coated. Use your hands to rub the salt in to the leaves. Seal the bags and leave at room temperature for 6 hours.

  2. Rinse the salt from the cabbage leaves and then drain and squeeze out any excess liquid. Place the cabbage in a large container with a tight fitting lid. Stir in the fish sauce, onion, garlic, sugar, ginger and chili paste. Seal the container and refrigerate until desired flavor is obtained. Serve cold.
