Spicy Korean Pickled Cabbage. It's not for everyone.

"Kim Chee is one of those dishes you either love or hate. There's no middle ground. If you love it, this is a pretty good recipe. If you don't, there's no good recipe on earth. I'm lucky, I like it. And my spouse let's me stay at home when I've eaten some. "

Preparation

Mix all dry ingredients together. Place in a large crockery or glass container that can be sealed airtight. Pour liquids over them, vinegar first. If the veggies are not covered by the liquid add more vinegar...NOT water- Seal jar and place into refrigerator for 2-12 weeks. *** NOTE *** The refrigeration is necessary to prevent spoilage.

Notes

The longer you leave it the better it gets. But your refrigerator's going to smell a bit. If you have an extra fridge in the garage this is a good thing to store there. Serve it to the guys at the next big football game. It is good stuff.

I'm comparing various recipes online before I make this for the first time in my new Harsch crock. Why so much salt?
