Any chance y'all would part with your recipe for kimchi?
I basically follow this recipe:
Basic Napa Cabbage Kimchi (Kimchee) Recipe - CHOW
Except I add about 1/4 c of whey (I drain it from yogurt), and skip the dried shrimp. I use either Napa or garden-fresh green cabbage--so much sweeter than what you get at the supermarket. I weigh down the cabbage when it is soaking in the salt-water brine for 48 hours, drain it well, squeeze out the water, and then mix it all up and put it in a 2 l jar, let it sit for 7-10 days before I put it in the fridge. I am running out of fridge space--thought I could can it like I do sauerkraut.You gotta play with how "hot" you want it. I sometimes add srirachi and chili garlic sauce. Depends on my mood. Kimchi is not part of my ethnic cooking background--I'm of Scandinavian descent, but I love this stuff.
