Ingredients

3
tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon pickling salt
2
pounds Chinese (Napa) cabbage, cut into 2-inch squares
6
scallions, cut into 2-inch lengths, then slivered
1 1/2
tablespoons minced fresh ginger
2
tablepoons korean ground dried hot pepper (or other mildly hot ground red pepper)
1
teaspoon sugar

Directions

  • 1 Dissolve the 3 tablespoons salt in the water. Put the cabbage into a large bowl, a crock, or a nonreactive pot, and pour the brine over it. Weight the cabbage down with a plate. Let the cabbage stand for 12 hours.
  • 2 Drain the cabbage, reserving the brine. Mix the cabbage with the remaining ingredients, including the 1 teaspoon salt. Pack the mixture into a 2-quart jar. Pour enough of the reserved brine over the cabbage to cover it. Push a freezer bag into the mouth of the jar, and pour the remaining brine into the bag. Seal the bag. Let the kimchi ferment in a cool place, at a temperature no higher than 68° F, for 3 to 6 days,until the kimchi is as sour as you like.
  • 3 Remove the brine bag, and cap the jar tightly. Store the kimchi in the refrigerator, where it will keep for months.
