1 1/2 lb Chinese cabbage
1 c Water

1. Wash the leaves of a Chinese cabbage and cut them into 2-inch lengths (the leafy end may be left longer; it will shrivel the most). Peel the Chinese turnip halve it lengthwise down the center and then slice thin across the grain. 2. Combine the salt and water. Place the vegetables in a large pot. Pour the salted water over the surface of the vegetables and cover the pot. Leave overnight. 3. The next day mince the scallions garlic and ginger. Drain the vegetables which should be wilted and reserve the salty water. Season with the cayenne scallion garlic and ginger. Mix the vegetables by hand using rubber gloves if available. Pack this mixture tightly into jars. Pour the salted water over the mixture so that the liquid comes to within 1/2 inch of the top of the jar. 4. Keep at room temperature for 2 or 3 days then refrigerate. Makes about 2 jars of kimchi which should be enough for a large dinner party. From: The Korean Cookbook By Judy Hyun.
