Low FODMAP Serving Size Info: Makes about 14 cups (3.5 kg); 224 servings; 1 serving = 1 tablespoon (16 g).
Begin with Salting the Cabbage: Place the cabbage in a large non-reactive bowl or container and add the salt as you go so that the cabbage and salt are added in layers. Toss very well to evenly distribute the salt. Allow to sit for 30 minutes, then stir it all together very well to re-distribute any salt and exuded liquid. Allow to sit for another 30 minutes and repeat the mixing process. Let it sit for 30 more minutes and stir again.
For the Vegetables & Spice Mixture: Place all of the vegetables in a large mixing bowl that is large enough to hold all of your ingredients and toss them together. Add the spice mixture (the gochugaru, fish sauce and ginger root) and the cooled porridge and stir everything together. It will be the texture of a thick paste.
Back To The Cabbage: Drain the salted cabbage (you might have to do this in batches), discarding any liquid. Soak the salted cabbage in clean water and then drain, three separate times. Taste the cabbage. It should taste just faintly salty.
