Kimchee Question

AnimalFarm2006 | May 24, 2010 11:55 AM

Hey all,

I joined this place just to ask this question. Can you ever have too much of something in kimchee?

I made my first batch of kimchee saturday night. It has yet to buble.

My ingredients:
1 head of nappa cabage, salted for 2-3 hrs ahead of time.
2 cups, or so of cayenne peper powder.
1/2 cup of fish sauce.
Six green onion cut up.
Lots of garlic.
A chunk of ginger
1/2 cup of salt.

I have everything mixed, and sitting in a plastic container on the kitchen counter. I checked it earlier for the first time, and it looks a little liquidy. I also have not see any bubbles. My container is pretty tight. I tried to get the best container possible without access to a jar, or walmart.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
