• Cucumber KIMCHI (Oi Sobaegi Kimchi) Traditional nappa cabbage. You'll like the crunch and the flavor - slightly sweet and spicy. Active Work Time: 30 minutes * Total Preparation Time: 1 hour plus 1 day standing Buchu, or wild leeks, can be found in Korean markets. 1/2 gallon plus 1/3 cup water 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon salt 20 Asian pickling cucumbers 1 head garlic, cloves separated and peeled 1 onion, cut into 1/2-inch dice 1 bunch green onions, sliced into 1/2-inch lengths 1 bunch Korean buchu, cut into 1/2-inch pieces 1/2 cup Korean ground chile 1 teaspoon sugar plus 1 teaspoon, optional Procedures: * Mix 1/2 gallon water with 3/4 cup salt, stirring for salt to dissolve. Soak cucumbers in salt water about 30 minutes. (Be careful not to soak too long.) Remove cucumbers and rinse. Cut about 1/4 inch from each end of cucumbers. Cut cucumbers in half in middle, not lengthwise. Hold cucumber facing circular middle. Cut in half lengthwise, leaving about 1/2 inch at end uncut. Cut in half lengthwise again, perpendicular to your first cut, leaving the end uncut. You should have 4 semi-equal parts of cucumber, cut but still attached. Repeat with remaining cucumbers. * Place garlic in a food processor or blender and mince. Combine onion, green onions, buchu, garlic, ground chile, 1 tablespoon salt and 1 teaspoon (optional)sugar in large bowl. (If mixing with your hands, be sure to wear rubber gloves to avoid chile burn.) * Set 3 (1-quart) jars on work surface. Using your fingers, separate cucumber quarters and stuff mix into cucumbers. Divide evenly among jars, pressing cucumbers down firmly into jars. Stir 1 teaspoon sugar into 1/3 cup water until sugar is completely dissolved. Pour sugar water over cucumbers. * Let sit 1 day before serving. Cucumber kimchi ferments very quickly. Refrigerate after opening. 3 quarts.
