Cut 1 large Napa cabbage in quarters lengthwise and remove the stem. Add the small leaves whole, and the big outer leaves cut into 3” long 1” wide into a bowl.
3
Mix 3 cups cold water and 1/2 cup Korean kimchi sea salt. Pour salt water over the cabbage and press down with hand. Soak for 1 hour. Toss upside down after 30m
