Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 teaspoons Sugar
½ cup Salt
4 \N Heads Garlic
3 tablespoons MSG Or Accent
1 pounds Carrots
2 larges Bunches Green Onions
1 large Head Chinese Cabbage
2 smalls Heads Regular Cabbage
3½ tablespoon Garlic Salt
1½ tablespoon Paprika
4 tablespoons Dried Red Pepper Flakes
20 larges Green Bell Peppers

Clean the kitchen sink as this is where you will be working. Cut the regular cabbage into 2 to 3 inch pieces. Place the cabbage in the sink and add the salt. Work in the salt using a kneading motion, until the cabbage is broken up. The Chinese cabbage should now be cut up and added; no kneading required. Let this stand for 5 to 10 minutes and then rinse once or twice and drain well. Shred the carrots, with a potato peeler or a fine food processor shreder. Cut the green onions into 2 inch pieces, using all of the onions. Cut the green peppers into ½ inch lengths. Grind up the red pepper and the garlic heads in a blender. Blend the garlic into the mixture one clove at a time, using 3 to 4 heads, depending on the size of the heads. Mix the ground up garlic and red pepper mixture, paprika, garlic salt and sugar. Blend this mixture into the cabbage. Mix well until all of the Chinese cabbage is tinted red. Add small amounts of water as you mix to keep the cabbage moist. Taste and add more salt if necessary, about 1 tb at a time; add more garlic salt instead if more garlic is also needed. Add about ¾ cup of water; press into a 1 gallon jug, glass is best. Leave outside refrigeration for 48 to 72 hours. This is necessary for fermentation. Refrigerate after fermentation period. Hints: For fermentation, leave the jug in the garage or other place outside the house; it really smells. Also, don't seal the lid on the jug, it might explode.
