Prepare the ingredients before making Kimchi in your home. Then, follow these steps below to serve Kimchi for your family or friends.

Ingredients: Kimchi

  • 3 lb Red cabbage
  • 3/4 lb Daikon radish
  • 1/2 lb Yellow onion
  • 5 to 10 cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 lb Carrots
  • 2 to 6 Thai Chilis
  • 2 tbsp Kosher Salt or Sea Salt

How to Make Kimchi

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 19 steps you must follow to make Kimchi in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Start by slicing the red cabbage in half, then quarters, so it'll be easier to work with.
  • Step 2
  • Slice all of the cabbage into strips about 1/4" thick. Put the cabbage into a bowl and set it aside.
  • Step 3
  • Slice all the daikon radish into thin coins. We slice everything super thinly to create as much surface area as possible! This will make it easier for the salt to do its work. The thicker it is, the longer it'll take to ferment.
  • Step 4
  • Add the radish to the same bowl as the cabbage.
  • Step 5
  • Trim and peel all of the onion. Thinly slice the onion and add it to the bowl.
  • Step 6
  • Peel all of the carrot.
  • Step 7
  • Now slice the carrot into thin coins and add it to the bowl.
  • Step 8
  • Peel 5-10 cloves of garlic, depending on how strong you like it, and smash the cloves.
  • Step 9
  • Add the garlic to the other vegetables in the bowl.
  • Step 10
  • Mince 2-6 Thai chilis into a fine paste. You'll start by cutting them into small slices then going over it all again with your knife to mince it even more finely.
  • Step 11
  • Add the chili to the bowl.
  • Step 12
  • It's time to mash those vegetables. Add 1/8 cup of salt (that's 2 tbsp) to the vegetables.
  • Step 13
  • Use your hands to squeeze and mash the vegetables and salt. Continue to do this until the vegetables start to leach water.
  • Step 14
  • Once water has leached out of the vegetables, set the bowl aside for 30 minutes. This will allow the salt to draw more water out of the vegetables. Clean up and relax!
  • Step 15
  • After the 30 minutes are up, tightly pack the vegetables into your 1 quart mason jar. Make sure there is enough liquid in the jar so that the vegetables are submerged.
  • Step 16
  • Put the lid on the jar and place it on your kitchen counter. Leave it at room temperature for at least 7 days. The bacteria need to be at room temperature to multiply and ferment.
  • Step 17
  • At least once a day, slowly open the lid to release the gases that build up. Hold your jar in the sink when doing this, for it’s sure to spray! Be sure to taste the ferment periodically. Once it tastes right to you, put it in your fridge.
  • Step 18
  • If the water level of the ferment drops below the vegetables, just add more of the mixture if you have any left over. If not, just add more water along with a pinch of salt, until the vegetables are submerged.
  • Step 19
  • Be sure to take a before and after picture of your kimchi. Watch it change color over time - it's a fascinating process. Post it on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #fermentfeast and we'll share it on the website.
