Karl’s Salt Cabbage with Red Shishito Pepper (Kyabetsu Shiozuke Tsukemono)

I am making several vegetable dishes for my Japanese feast this Sunday, pickled cabbage is an easy choice for me. Japan has many Tsukemono, literally “pickled things.” When my father came back from Japan in the fifties, he introduced my family to Japanese cuisine. One dish that he learned to make was salt pickled cabbage (kyabetsu shio-zuke; キャベツ塩-漬け ). A fond memory of my childhood was this salty crunchy pickle, that he only made occasionally for special occasions.
