Ginger Kimchi – This is how you succeed with the vegan miracle cure!
- potato peeler*
- kitchen grater*
- fermentation jars*
- Cut the Chinese cabbage without the stalk into strips about 1 cm wide.
- Peel radishes and carrots and grate over the coarse side of your kitchen grater.
- Wash, core and roughly grate the apples.
- Peel and finely dice the red onion and garlic.
- Peel the turmeric and ginger (use kitchen gloves for turmeric because of the strong coloring). Then grate finely.
- Rinse the parsley, shake dry and roughly chop.
- Roughly chop the dried red chili.
Mix all ingredients:
- Put all the prepared ingredients including the spices in a sufficiently large bowl and knead well with your hands. Until vegetable juice comes out.
- Season with salt.
- Cover with a tea towel and let stand at room temperature for about 2 hours.
- In the meantime, rinse the glasses with hot water and sanitize them.
Fill and wait:
- Pour the kimchi into the prepared glasses or glass. Press down well and divide up the rest of the broth.
- Press the vegetables down firmly so that they are well covered with liquid. So-called weighting stones are best suited for this (there are also glass weights), which are simply placed on top to weigh down the vegetables.
- Just put the lid on or leave the jars covered with a tea towel for about 3 to 5 days at room temperature.
- Occasionally check if the kimchi is still covered with enough liquid. If vegetables are floating on top, you should remove them.
- Your chili ginger kimchi is ready when it smells pleasantly sour. Now you can close the jar and keep it in the fridge until you eat it.
