      Title: Cabbage kimchee
 Categories: Vegetarian, Ethnic, Relishes, Salsa
      Yield: 2 Quarts
 
      1 lb Chinese cabbage
      1 lb White radish
      3 tb Salt
      2 tb Finely minced fresh ginger
  1 1/2 tb Minced garlic
      5    Scallions, cut into fine
           -rounds, including green
      1 tb Cayenne
      1 ts Sugar
 
  If you are using a small, whole cabbage, cut it in half lengthwise,
  and then cut it across at 2-inch intervals. If you are using half of
  a large cabbage, cut it in half again lengthwise, and then crosswise
  at 2-inch intervals.
  
  Peel the white radish, cut it in half lengthwise, and then cut it
  crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick slices.  In a large bowl put 5 cups
  water and 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons of the salt. Mix. Add the
  cabbage and radish to this water and dunk them in a few times as they
  have a tendency to float.  Leave the vegetables in the salty water.
  Cover loosely and set aside for 12 hours. Turn the vegetables over a
  few times.
  
  Put the ginger, garlic, scallions, cayenne, sugar, and 1 teaspoon
  salt in another large bowl.  Mix well.
  
  Take the cabbage out of its soaking liquid with a slotted spoon (save
  the liquid) and put it in the bowl with the seasonings. Mix well.
  
  Put this cabbage mixture into a 2-quart jar or crock. Pour enough of
  the salt water over it to cover the vegetables (about 2 cups). Leave
  1 inch of empty space at the top of the jar. Cover loosely with a
  clean cloth and set aside for 3 to 7 days.  In the summer, kimchees
  mature with much greater speed;  in the winter, the process slows
  down unless the central heating is ferocious.  Taste the pickle after
  3 days to check on the sourness. When it is done to your liking,
  cover the jar and refrigerate.
  
  To serve, remove just as much of the kimchee solids as you think you
  will need for a meal--a cupful is enough for 4 people--and put it in
  the center of a bowl.  The kimchee liquid in this pickle is left
  behind in the jar and may be used to flavor stews and soups.  Serve
  this cabbage kimchee with any Korean meal.

  (Be sure and keep a close eye on the kimchee after the third day. If
  mold appears, scoop out the mold, and refrigerate the kimchee
  immediately).
