KIMCHI: QUICK AND EASY RECIPE / COME PREPARARE IL KIMCHI

Here is  my recipe for homemade Kimchi.

Chinese cabbage     1
coarse salt               about 3 Tablespoons
red chilli pepper      about 3 or 4 Tablespoons
ginger                      1 small piece, grated
garlic                       3 cloves, chopped finely
water

Wash the cabbage leaves, then place them in a bowl and sprinkle the salt over it. Put a weight over it and let it stay overnight. The next day, rinse the cabbage and squeeze out the water. Put it in a large bowl and add the chilli pepper, ginger, garlic and about 1/2 cup of water.  Mix it all up, using gloves to protect your hands. Place it in a sterilized jar and let it stay in the fridge for about 4 or 5 days before serving it with rice.

Ecco la mia ricetta per il Kimchi fatto in casa.

Una verza cinese
sale grosso   3 cucchiai
peperoncino rosso in polvere  3 o  4  cucchiai
zenzero         un pezzettino, grattugiato
aglio              3 spicchi, tritati finemente
acqua

Lavate la verza, mettetela in un recipiente e aggiungete il sale. Lasciate riposare almeno 24 ore. Sciaquate la verza, strizzate le foglie per eliminare il liquido in eccesso e unite il peperoncino, lo zenzero, l'aglio e mezza tazza di acqua.  Mescolate bene, quindi versare il composto in un barattolo sterilizzato. Conservare in frigo per 4-5 giorni prima di servire.

  4. I have to save this recipe as I've often wanted to make some but thought it was so much work (the traditional way). Thanks!
