“This is a great authentic Korean dish: unlike in some Kimchi, the sugar is from natural sources like persimmon and cucumber. It has a great flavor and just enough spice.” - by henry
Original recipe yields 3 1-quart jars
- Cube the cabbage and rinse well. Put the cabbage in a bowl and sprinkle liberally with salt, tossing to mix. Set aside for 1 hour.
- Mix more salt into the cabbage and set aside for another hour. Wash and drain the cabbage. Combine the garlic, ginger, and onion in a blender with the water. Blend on high speed until smooth.
- Stir together the rinsed drained cabbage, garlic-ginger mixture, minced green onions, cayenne pepper, persimmon, radish, and cucumber and mix well. Transfer the mixture into airtight containers, and refrigerate for 3 days before serving.

"I serve as chef-in-residence at our annual church retreats. Served this kimchi at this year's event -- and it was a hit! Our international congregation has many Korean members and they were thrilled..." See more to see the kimchi offered in the salad bar! It packs a kick -- more than the kimchi at our local Korean restaurant -- so warn your guests when you serve it! None of our folk thought it was too hot, though. It had just the right amount of OOMPH -- and the persimmons had enough sweet to offset the heat of the cayenne pepper that was used."
"I have never had "authentic" kimchi so I can't rate the recipe that way, but this recipe is delicious. It was a hit with my family and guests. I have made it twice, once a veggie version and once wi..." See moreth one TBSP of fish sauce. I ended up soaking the cabbage in salt for about 3-4 hours. I did not have persimmons, so I used one sweet apple instead. I used about two tsps of good quality hot chili powder (the kind from an asian grocer) and it was spicy but great. I offered rice with the kimchi and some had it over rice, some just ate it straight."
