Nutritional values

The spicy white cabbage kimchi strengthens our intestinal flora with its lactic acid bacteria - which in turn has a positive effect on our defenses and health.

If you have got a taste for it, you can vary it again and again. How about for example a vegetable kimchi with three kinds of cabbage or a spicy kimchi with peppers? Stored in the refrigerator, the white cabbage kimchi can be kept for about 3 months.

Preparation steps

White Cabbage Kimchi preparation step 1

Clean cabbage, wash, cut out the hard stalk. Roughly dice cabbage and place in layers in a large bowl, sprinkle each layer with salt and finish with salt. Cover with a plate and weigh down. Let stand in a cool, dark place overnight.

White Cabbage Kimchi preparation step 2

The next day, rinse cabbage thoroughly and drain; reserve 4-5 tablespoons brine. Put cabbage back into a bowl. Wash, trim, and cut scallions into rings. Wash and trim celery and cut into 1.5 inch pieces. Peel carrots and cut diagonally into slices. Quarter, peel, core, and slice the apple.

White Cabbage Kimchi preparation step 3

Peel garlic and ginger and cut into pieces. Puree both with fish and soy sauce to a fine paste. Mix in sugar and chili powder and add to cabbage with prepared vegetables and sesame seeds. Pour the kimchi into jars, add some of the brine (about 1 tablespoon at a time) and leave to marinate in a cool, dark place overnight, or preferably for several days.
