Short Cut Kimchi

Kimchi is a Korean condiment that is commonly served as a side dish with meals.  Traditional Kimchi is fermented which can be time consuming but this recipe can be used right away.  It is deliciously spicy and amazingly satisfying.  Feel free to adjust the spice to your taste.  You can also use it to mix into brown rice, put in soups or stews, top a nice grass fed steak, etc.

2 red or green jalepenos (the red are a bit spicier)
4 cloves garlic
1/4 cup xylitol
2 tablespoons chopped ginger
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 1/2 tablespoons sea salt
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1/2 large head of napa cabbage

Put all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it forms a paste.  Chop the cabbage into 1-2 inch pieces and toss with the jalepeno paste.  Refrigerate at least 4 hours.
