      Fancy cabbage and peppers could be used in this recipe but rember it came from a korean lady living in korea,She did not have those ingredients. This is the orignial recipe they used to bury in the ground to ferment. Not everyone likes it the way you do howard. To each his own.

      As a person who's spent a considerable amount of time experimenting with kim chee, reading it, and eating it, I'm sorry to say that this recipe is grossly deficient in several respects. The most obvious one is that you *must* use Korean red pepper flakes--not the stuff you get anywhere else. IOW, no pizzeria red pepper flakes, or any other kind. Second, the recipe calls for *nappa* cabbage, not "regular" cabbage. In fact, regular cabbage seems to take an extraordinarily long time to ferment--and fermentation is the key to kim chee. I will try to remember to post my own recipe for kim chee, which is not hard, but gives vastly superior results to the results you will get from this recipe.

      I frequent a Korean restaurant in Syracuse NY. They make their ow Kimchee, very much the way this receipt describes. I asked them once, and they use redily available locally grown produce, including peppers. If nappa isn't available, they use whatever good cabage is. If cooking were such an exact science noone would do it. Just enjoy what you make, with what you can make it with. -Ang :)
