Cucumber Kimchi & The Zone - 2 Questions

I've done some searches on here and can't get a straight answer.

I make my own every week, it's become a time for me to reflect of my time in South Korea and the great memories there. The vegetables are all as fresh as I can get and the only thing I can find in the unfavorable category is honey. My recipe yields 2 quarts.

Recipe:
5-6 large cucumbers or 15-20 small cucumbers (6in)
3 green onions
1/4 yellow onion
2 tbsp go choo ga rhoo
1 tsp vinegar
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp garlic
2 tbsp salt

Question 1: How much of a serving is a block?

Question 2: Would the honey be counted as negligible, it's 1tbsp for the whole batch?

Thanks for the help and clarity.

I agree, looking at the ingredients a block would probably be the whole batch!

Hi Kyle, I made a recipe on livestrong (login required...) using the ingredients you list and it calculated to about 5 blocks of carbs for the whole recipe.

The honey contributes 17 of the total 45 grams of carbohydrate. If you let it ferment though some of the sugar is going to go away - getting converted to acetic acid though.
