SWEET CHILE SAUCE

I have got Louise Pickford's book, Grilling: Delicious Recipes for Outdoor Grills, as a gift. Have you started the BBQ season yet? Here is a recipe from the book (page 57):

Sweet Chile Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 6 red chile peppers, without the seeds, chopped.
  • 4 cloves of garlic, chopped.
  • 1 tea spoon of fresh ginger, grated.
  • 1 tea spoon salt.
  • 1 dl (3,38 fluid ounce) rice vinegar.
  • 1 dl (3,38 fluid ounce) sugar.


Put the chile peppers, garlic, ginger, and salt in a food processor and mix it into a coarse blend. Put the mix in a saucepan and add vinegar and sugar. Let it boil and then simmer for five minutes. (The lid should cover about 75% of the saucepan.) Take off the pot from the oven and let it cool down. Pour into a airtight can and put in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

My brother gave me a bottle of Melinda's Original Habanero XXXtra Hot Pepper Sauce and and a bag of Blair's Habanero chips as birthday presents. If you like chile and sweet peppers, go to my other blog and check out how my plants have grown.
