Clarissa, Thank you! I did not press the radish. I don't think that I would. They don't have a ton of water in them. The leftovers I had today the radish still had a snap texture to it which was nice, because the cucumber was pretty limp.y next batch I will add carrot also. Julienned not shredded. Oh and if I can find it, octopus!
Now were getting closer and closer to the traditional kimchi, gotta love it.
