  1. Wash cabbage, bok choy and peel kohlrabi. Remove any decaying parts.

  3. Pour salt solution over cabbage and bok choy. Let it soak for 3 hours stirring every hour and mix it every 1 hour.
  4. After 3 hours, rinse cabbage and bok choy in cold water. Let it sit in the colander for 2 hours until completely drained.
  5. Mix 3 TBSP of rice flour and 3 TBSP water in a small sauce pan and heat on medium heat. Whisk in 2 cups of water. Cook until translucent-glue like texture. Remove from heat.
