• In a blender, place the apple (cored, peeled, and sliced) and add the peeled ginger, diced bell pepper, garlic, and fish sauce. Add the rice flour or the paste you have made.

• Blend on high to create a purée. When finished, pour the purée into a large clean bowl. Drain the liquid from the cut Napa (important). Combine the purée onto the top of the Napa, add the red pepper flakes, and, using gloves, hand-mix well. 

• Let the kimchi ferment in a sealed container in your fridge. Try a little each day to see how much fermenting you like.
