Well, I'm Korean and I make kimchee all the time and if you want to taste real Korean kimchee there is more ingredients need to be add but this is more simple way to make it. First you need to cut the cabage the size you want and than put all them in the sink or the big bowl, sprinkle some water and sprinkle salt all over it or you can soak all in to the very salted water, this way the cabage will soften up. when cabage is soften rinse them all very well and than try to take all the water out best as you can. Then mix all the ingredients with cabage, mix well with hand. Put in a glass jar, don't put them in a plastic it will ruin the taste. You can store in a refrigiator but it takes very long time before edible. It takes about two weeks in the refrigeator for it to taste right Or you can leave it on the counter for 3 to 4 days but not a warm or hot place. If smells like little sour it has better taste and than you can make it to soup or stew or even pancake or kim chee yakki myan doo.
