Serves
750g

Perfect to have on the table with a few sakes or to accompany your ramen.

TIP: The Kimchi can be stored in an airtight sterilised jar in the fridge for up to 1 month. Be sure to loosen the lid regularly to prevent gas build-up OR pop an elastic band around the jar so it can self burp!

EXTRA TIP: Because we know ingredients are scarce right now you can sub daikon for regular radish and use regular chilli powder if need be.

Method
  1. Mix salt with 2 liters of water and dissolve. Submerge cabbage in brine, cover and weigh down so cabbage is fully submerged. Leave to brine for 48 hours.
  2. Check on your cabbage – it should be soft and a little salty. If it’s too salty rinse under cold running water then leave to drain for 30 mins.
  3. Cut away the hard core of each wedge and cut into 3cm squares.
  4. Blend all marinade ingredients aside from the spring onions into a paste. Work the marinade paste and spring onion thoroughly into the cabbage pieces, then seal with cling film and weigh down so the cabbage is fully submerged in the marinade. Store in the fridge for at least 2 weeks before eating.
