Place all of this into a blender and add two cups of peeled garlic and 2 cups of cold water. Blend all together and pour into a bowl

Final Kimchi Step!
Drain the wilted cabbage, place in a colander and rinse 2 times to get all of the salt off and drain again. Put cabbage back into the bowl, add the spring onions and then add 1 cup of the kimchi paste mixing really well! NOTE: add the paste 1 cup at a time. If you like it more spicy, add a second cup! Wear gloves while mixing this in because it can burn your hands!
Place in glass jars and leave on an open bench for 24-48 hours max. Then close and place it in the fridge!
It lasts for months in the fridge! With your leftover paste, put serving sizes in separate containers and freeze. Defrost and use!
