Napa Cabbage Kimchi
Makes one tightly packed gallon jar

1 large Napa cabbage, about 4 to 5 pounds
1 ½ gallon water
1 cup kosher salt

3 cups water
¾ cup sweet rice flour
¼ cup sugar

1 cup chopped onions
2 ½ cups chili flakes
10 ounces grated daikon radish
4 ounces grated ginger
6 cloves of chopped garlic
1/3 cup fish sauce

2 cups chopped scallions

1. First slice the cabbage lengthwise into quarters. Core out the heart. Fit the cabbage into a large container and add the water and salt. Leave at room temperature for 2 hours. Drain and rinse the cabbage. Roughly chop the cabbage into about 2-inch portions following the length of the cabbage. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.

2. To make the kim-chi paste, combine the water, sweet rice flour and sugar in a pot and bring to a simmer. Stir constantly until the mixture thickens approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Allow it to cool while making the guts.

3. To make the guts, add the onions, chili flakes, radish, ginger, garlic and fish sauce into a food processor and puree on high until well combined.

4. Fold the guts into the cooled paste. Add the chopped scallions. Wearing clean gloves, mix this thoroughly into the cabbage Transfer to a clean glass jar or an air-tight plastic container with a tight fitting lid.

5. Leave this container out at room temperature for 24 hours. Then store in the refrigerator. It will be ready to eat in about 4 to 5 days but will keep for another 2 weeks.

Persimmon and Sunchoke Salad
Makes 2 salads

1 very ripe teardrop persimmon
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
Juice of 1 yuja fruit
Pinch sea salt

2 firm fuyu persimmons
½ cup water
½ cup rice vinegar
1 ½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar

1 cup chopped nori
1 cup water
2 teaspoons gochujang paste
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame oil

4 ounces sunchokes scrubbed clean
2 teaspoons sesame oil
Sea salt

4 shishito peppers
4 raw chestnuts, peeled and cleaned
4 perilla leaves

1. Make persimmon puree by scooping out the flesh of the ripe persimmon into a blender.  Add the vinegar, yuja juice and salt.  Puree on high to get a smooth puree.

2. Make the pickled persimmons by peeling the fuyu persimmons and slicing into thin rounds.  In a pot, boil the water, vinegar, salt and sugar.  Turn off the heat and pour hot liquid into a container with sliced persimmons.  Cover and let cool in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

3. For the nori puree, add the nori, water, gochujang, soy sauce and sesame oil to a pot and simmer for 10 minutes.  Let cool and puree in a blender on high.  Add a little more water as needed to get a thick puree.

4. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.  Cut sunchokes into large pieces.  Toss with sesame oil and salt.  Roast in the oven for 20 minutes or until the sunchokes are soft to the touch.  Let cool at room temperature.

5. Grill the shishito peppers whole until charred.  Set aside.  Slice the raw chestnuts very thin.  Set aside.  Chiffonade the perilla leaves.  Set aside.

6. To plate, add a little persimmon puree to a plate.  Curl the pickled persimmon slices and add to plate.  Add a little nori puree to each persimmon curl slice.  Add a few pieces of the roasted sunchoke.  Add 2 pieces of the grilled shishito.  Add a few sliced chestnuts and finish with some of the perilla leaves.  Finish with a little more sea salt and sesame oil and serve immediately.
