Kaleva Kimchi

My recipe is based on the recipe for "Emergency kimchi" found here but I made some changes to the ingredients and some changes to the directions.

Here is my version:

Ingredients

2 lbs. cabbage
1/4 cup kosher salt
1 cup water
1/3 cup sriracha sauce
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
1 tbs. sugar
1/4 cup minced garlic
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup julienned carrot

Directions

Cut 2 pounds of cabbage into thin strips about 2-3 inches in length and 1/4 inch wide. Place into a large bowl.
Add 1/4 cup of kosher salt to 1 cup cold water and mix well. Add salt water to bowl of cabbage and mix well with your hands. Set aside for 1 hour mixing about every 10 to 15 minutes.

Make the kimchi paste by mixing sriracha sauce, sugar, worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, chopped onion and julienned carrot in a bowl.

Put cabbage into a colander and rinse thoroughly. Discard salt water. Put the cabbage back into the large bowl.

Mix the kimchi paste into the cabbage thoroughly. Put the kimchi into a suitably sized container that will not stain.

Press the kimchi down with your hands or device to keep the kimchi from being exposed to too much air. Using a meat chopper, I packed it in a clean 1 gallon pickle jar and capped it although it looks like I could have fit it all into a 2 quart pickle jar.

I kept the bottle of kimchi on the counter, out of direct sunlight, for three days to ferment before putting it in the refrigerator. My wife and I really like it!

1. If you want to see the Real McCoy of kimchi

check out Chef Anthony Bourdain's trip to S. Korea on No Reservations. Skip to the 10:00 mark. It is really interesting...shrimp paste, pots buried underground to ferment, etc.
