  • 16oz (454g) cucumbers (about 2 medium), very thinly sliced

  • ¼ cup sliced scallions

  • 1 ½ tbsp fine sea salt

  • 1 tbsp Swerve confectioners’-style sweetener

  • 1 tbsp fish sauce

  • 2 tsp crushed red pepper

  • 2 tsp grated fresh ginger

  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed to a paste or minced


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients.
  • Divide the mixture evenly among four quart-size jars, leaving 1 inch at the top of each. Allow for a one-hour rest to allow the juices to flow. If you prefer a milder-flavoured kimchi, eat it right away, or loosely cover the jars and leave the kimchi to ferment on the counter for 2 days before chilling it in the refrigerator. The flavours will evolve with time. Cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve. To release accumulated gas, open the jars every 2 to 3 days.
