  1. Cube the cabbage and rinse well. Put the cabbage in a bowl and sprinkle liberally with salt, tossing to mix. Set aside for 1 hour.
  2. Mix more salt into the cabbage and set aside for another hour. Wash and drain the cabbage. Combine the garlic, ginger and onion in a blender with the water. Blend on high speed until smooth.
  3. Stir together the rinsed drained cabbage, garlic-ginger mixture, minced spring onions, cayenne, persimmon, radish and cucumber then mix well. Transfer the mixture into airtight containers then refrigerate for 3 days before serving.


You may use a small apple instead of (or in addition to) the persimmon, if you prefer. You may omit the cucumber, if desired.
