Chipotle Kimchi

Got a new toy, a Chile grinder made from Iron wood.  My mother found it while traveling through New Mexico, Santa Fe I think, and thought I could use it.  This Tex-Asian Chipotle Kimchi has Chipotles that were ground with this unique Chile grinder.
I break a dried red Jalapeno into pieces, then take the red Chile flesh, and put it in the grinder.  This lets the seeds, and membranes fall out, reducing the heat.  Hand ground Chile has better texture in the Kimchi.  I have leftover Brine, Fish Sauce, Ginger, Garlic, and the Chipotles to add to the Kimchi Sauce,  I used the food processor to make the sauce, but it might be better to use a motor and pestle.
I ate some as I was assembling it, and its great already.  With another week of fermentation it will be perfect.  Can't wait till Friday.  Totally Nomlishous...
