This is a fresh kimchi - not nearly as pungent as the tranditional fermented kind. Much more accessible to the Western palate.

Recipe Ingredients for Kimchi

1 lb Chinese cabbage
2 tbsp sea salt
4 cups cold water
1 tbsp garlic, chopped
1 tbsp ginger, finely chopped
1 tbsp green onion, finely chopped
2 tsp dried chili pepper flakes
2 tsp sugar
1 tbsp sea salt

Recipe Directions for Kimchi

  1. Separate and wash the cabbage leaves.

  2. Sprinkle them with the 2 tbsp of salt.

  3. Place them in a non corrosive dish (Pyrex) and pour in the 4 cups cold water, cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge over night.

  4. The water should cover the leaves if not place a heavy object on them to keep them submerged.

  5. After sitting overnight pour off the water and rinse the leaves well, shake out excess moisture. ( I used my lettuce dryer to remove the extra moisture).

  6. Mix the garlic, ginger, green onion,chili flakes,sugar & 1 tbsp salt, stir together.

  7. Pour 11/2 cups of very hot water over the mixed seasoning.

  8. Place cabbage leaves in a large zip lock bag or in a bowl, pour in the seasoning, mix well so the seasoning is on every leaf.

  9. Place in the fridge for two days. Flip the bag every time you open the fridge door.

  10. To serve cut the leaves into 2" strips and serve as a side condiment.

  11. To store pack the cabbage into a jar and store in the fridge it will keep for several days to a week or more.
