To preserve the napa cabbage

Place the cabbage and salt in a bowl and mix well, press down with a plate. Cover and leave to infuse at room temperature for approx. 48 hrs. Rinse the cabbage in cold water, drain well.

To ferment the napa cabbage

Using a food processor, puree the chillies with all the other ingredients to form a smooth paste. Combine the paste with the napa cabbage and mix well, fill to the rim of the warmed, sterilized jar, press down well and seal tightly. Leave to infuse at room temperature for approx. 24 hrs.

Good to know
That fits: Fish and meat.
Shelf life: Store in a cool, dark place for approx. 1 week, opening the jar daily so that the gases produced during fermentation can escape.
