Directions

  1. Preparing the cabbage and vegetables

    • Cut the cabbage in half and remove the core.

    • Rinse the halves under running water or soak them in a basin for a few seconds until all the leaves are wet.

    • Sprinkle 43 g of salt evenly between the leaves. Let them sit for about 2 hours, turning them over every 20 minutes.

    • Rinse the cabbage under running water or wash in a basin to get rid of any dirt or salt. Drain and set aside.

    • Combine daikon radish, carrot, red bell pepper, chives, chestnuts and jujubes in a separate bowl. Set aside.



  2. Making the brine

    • In a blender, blend the onion, ginger, garlic, and Korean pear into a creamy paste. Set aside.

    • Mix 4 cups of water with 2 tablespoons of salt in a bowl. Stir it well until the salt is thoroughly dissolved.

    • Put the blended paste into a muslin cloth and put the cloth into the bowl of brine for the blended flavors to seep through. Squeeze it a bit and stir the brine for a while.



  3. Making the kimchi

    • Spread the daikon radish, carrot, red bell pepper, chives, chestnuts and jujubes between each leaf of the cabbage and put into a container or casserole.

    • Pour the brine over the kimchi until it’s submerged.

    • Cover and let it sit at room temperature until it starts fermenting, between 1½ to 3 days, depending on how warm your room is. A warmer room will ferment faster. Keep an eye on the kimchi and taste it every now and then. When the brine turns sour, it’s fermenting.

    • Move it to the fridge, which will slow down the fermentation process. It will keep for about 1 month.
