1、Salt the Chinese cabbage. First spread salt on every leaf of the cabbage, then put it into a pot with a piece of preservative film and spend one night. ( it will be better to salt cabbage with a piece of heavy stone above on it, which can make the salt taste get into the cabbage easily.).
2、Cut the ginger, garlic, apple and pear into broken pieces ( you’d better to do this with a blender, that will make it easy and the taste is better as well). Put the Korean chilli powder into a pot with hot water, and pour out the water, then mix all of the materials with some sugar, churn them.
3、Daub the mixture on every piece of the cabbage, when you finish this process, you need to package it with preservative film and then keep it in your fridge.

This can save us many time to do other things.

What also be needed are monosodium glutamate, ginger, onion, garlic, shrimp sauce, nuoc-mam, sugar and salt. The the mixed jam is too sticky to be used, it will be better to put some slice beef soup into it.
