Uncle TC is my uncle Teck Cheong. He loves to experiment in the kitchen now he has fully retired from work. and my Aunty Esther has in turn retired from the kitchen so that uncle can play in the kitchen.

This is his own recipe which he concocted and our family has tasted it and loved it. And he shares it with me.



Ingredients
1 large Chinese Cabbage(the long type)
3 tbsp Sea Salt
6 to 8 tbsp Korean Chilli Powder
500ml Distilled white vinegar
50g sugar(more or less to taste)

Method
1. Cut cabbage into smaller pieces.
2. Wash and drain water.
3. Arrange the leafy part on the bottom of a large earthern pot.
4. The white stem parts should be at the top.
5. Sprinkle salt on top and leave it uncovered overnight.
6. The next day, discard water residule.
7. Press to squeeze additional water. Discard this water residule.
8. Sprinkle Korean Chilli powder on top.
9. Leave it aside ovenight.(Cover the pot with a piece of cloth..to prevent any insects falling into it! )
10. The next day, more water will collect at the bottom of the pot.
11. Again, drain and discard water.
12. Now add Rice Vinegar. Make sure vinegar level covers the cabbage.
13. Leave it cover for 7 days.
14. After 7 days, add sugar, stir to taste.
15. Can be kept in the fridge, indefinitely.

Notes
Ideally, keep this in a dark corner, away from direct sunlight or direct heat(oven, stove)
During the fermentation process, do not open the cover to view. Or fresh air will enter the pot and slows down the fermentation process.
Can use Glass jar with tight cover lid.
I have made it with Radish too. Just cut into cubes and the steps are the same as above.

pickled green onions are a different lot or way to do. Usually for us at home, we don't eat it like kimchi. We use pickled onions to braise a seafood dish.
yummy but it also depends on the type of vinegar you used.

I have use my home made wine to pickled green onions. my mom loves it. yummy
