This is not really a recipe but a step by step of what I did. It will show that with some basic knowlege you can adapt and make kimchi.
When I was in Santiago I picked up some fish sauce so I was ready to make kimchi. I wanted to make Easy kimchi http://www.maangchi.com/recipe/easy-kimchi But when I went to the agro market I could not find Napa Cabbage or Dikon. I have been seeing them but I guess the season is over.
But I did find some Chinese greens and some green onions that looked very close to jjook pa.
I bought them. When I got them to the apartment I noticed that the stalks were very tough but thats ok. So lets get started.
