Description

The Korean word mak means "carelessly" or "roughly." I wouldn't say this is a careless recipe per se, but I would say that it is an easier recipe than the traditional one and is my preferred way of making kimchi. Cutting the cabbage first makes it easier to handle, and this recipe does away with the use of the porridge. Most important, this version is just as tasty. The recipe is from Asian Pickles at Home: 75 Easy Recipes for Quick, Fermented, and Canned Pickles by Patricia Tanumihardja, published by Rockridge Press. Copyright © 2020 by Callisto Media.

    Directions

    1. Wash all your equipment with hot, soapy water.
    2. Halve the cabbage and cut a "V" notch at the base to remove the core. Cut into bite-size pieces. Put the cabbage in a large nonreactive bowl and sprinkle with the salt. Massage the salt into the cabbage and set aside for 2 to 3 hours, tossing every 30 minuets or so. The cabbage is ready when it has shrunk and is soft and bendable.
    3. Rinse the cabbage under cold running water to remove any excess salt, and drain in a colander.
