After that, it is poured strongly with salt water (brine). Brine should be taken so much that the cabbage was completely covered with it. Top put the press. In this form, the dish should last for 2 days. After a while, the leaves are thoroughly washed and the brine is drained. Now the "dicker" is ready for further use. Any recipe for kimchi necessarily involves the preparation of a burning paste, which will be salted with salted cabbage. Before its preparation it is desirable to put on gloves that not to burn a hand skin. So, in a meat grinder grind garlic and bitter pepper, and the last should be almost twice as much. After the mixture is added a little salt and mix well. Then each leaf of cabbage is lightly smeared with cooked pasta. Kimchi is almost ready, it remains only to put the cabbage in a tightly closed container (for example, a jar) and let it stand for a couple of weeks in a cool place. This recipe allows you to withstand "pile" and at room temperature. However, in this case it should be taken into account that the oxidation process will go much faster.
