This recipe is for homemade Korean Kimchi. Kimchi is a traditional Korean side dish made from salted and fermented vegetables such as napa cabbage seasoned with gochugaru or Korean chili powder, spring onions, garlic, fish sauce, and more. It is a staple in Korean cuisine and has been well-received and loved by many Filipinos like me.

You can taste test and adjust depending on the level of heat, saltiness, and sweetness that you prefer.

Mix the kimchi

In a clean large bowl, put the cabbage and add the sauce gradually. Use clean and dry hands (or use a clean food-grade gloves) to mix the ingredients. Make sure to distribute the kimchi sauce evenly and all cabbage pieces have been covered with sauce. Transfer to a clean container and press it to remove air bubbles. Leave at room temperature and place in a dark area or cover it with dry clean towel. Transfer to the ref on the 3rd day.

Best eaten after its 1st to 2nd week of fermentation.
