How Do You Make Cucumber Kimchee?
Kimchee, or kimchi, is a Korean dish made of vegetables, such as cabbage or radishes, that are salted, seasoned and stored in sealed containers. It is spicy and usually served as a condiment at almost every meal. Trim both ends of the cucumbers, quarter, and cut into 1/2 inch (4 cm) chunks. Sprinkle with 3 oz (85 g) salt and toss to mix. Set aside for 30 minutes. Drain the cucumbers and reserve the liquid. To make the seasoning, combine the rice porridge, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, sugar, 2 oz (60 g) salt and chili flakes. Add the radish, carrot, scallion, cucumber and reserved liquid. Toss gently to mix. Put everything in a container. You can serve this kimchee immediately or refrigerate it.
