  1. First, let’s read the how to guide to learn everything about fermentation!
  2. Remove any damaged outer leaves from the cabbage. Do not rinse. 
  3. Cut the leaves into pieces and mix them with the salt in a bowl. Leave to stand for 20 mins.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the seasoning, peel and finely slice the radish and spring onion, and cut the leek into julienne strips. Crush the garlic, peel the ginger and cut it into sticks.
  5. Mix all these ingredients with the soy sauce, fish sauce and chilli pepper. Leave to stand for 10 minutes at room temperature.
  6. Fill the mason jar by alternating layers of cabbage with the other ingredients. Press the mixture down firmly to get rid of any air pockets. Close tightly.
  7. Leave to ferment for one week at room temperature, then ideally store at cellar temperature.

 If you are looking for a sweet taste it can be consumed after 1 week, or for more acidity, consume after 2 weeks.
