I enjoyed talking to them. I was glad that Jovi appreciated my art work when he browsed my sketch pad. They even took a picture of it. That pinkie promise also reminded me of something. That promises are really important for them.
* 2 tablespoons sea salt
* 4 cups cold water
* 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, chopped
* 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely chopped
* 1 tablespoon green onion, finely chopped
* 2 teaspoons dried chili pepper flakes
* 2 teaspoons sugar
* 1 tablespoon sea salt
Separate and wash the cabbage leaves.
Sprinkle them with the 2 tbsp of salt.
Place them in a non corrosive dish (Pyrex) and pour in the 4 cups cold water, cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge over night.
The water should cover the leaves if not place a heavy object on them to keep them submerged.
After sitting overnight pour off the water and rinse the leaves well, shake out excess moisture. ( I used my lettuce dryer to remove the extra moisture).
Mix the garlic, ginger, green onion,chili flakes,sugar & 1 tbsp salt, stir together.
Pour 11/2 cups of very hot water over the mixed seasoning.
Place cabbage leaves in a large zip lock bag or in a bowl, pour in the seasoning, mix well so the seasoning is on every leaf.
Place in the fridge for two days. Flip the bag every time you open the fridge door.
To serve cut the leaves into 2" strips and serve as a side condiment.
To store pack the cabbage into a jar and store in the fridge it will keep for several days to a week or more.
I hope I could meet them again somewhere. I would love to know their culture more. Knowing different cultures is really one of a kind. I just love talking to people from different races. I love it when I introduce my culture to others and vice versa.
After the conversation we had, i realized how I love my course. Communication arts is really my passion. I will never trade my course for anything better than it, for I think it's the best ever.
