Part 2 of my Goodness That's a Lot of Peppers series is another sauce I found in The Joy of Pickling.
This one is Southeast Asian Chile-Garlic Relish and I tasted it tonight with a sausage and MAN, it is spicy! It was incredibly delicious, so I had about a teaspoon of it (hence the name "relish"). But then it had an afterburn on my tongue that required some milk swishing and a banana. Then I got hot~ my whole body. Suffice it to say, try this in moderation but it is worth trying.
I halved the recipe, which is hot peppers, garlic, salt, and cider vinegar.
I made it in a jar so I could use the immersion blender.
She says to keep the chili seeds intact, and the immersion blender did a nice job of that.
This is an essential ingredient in the next recipe, sweet chili garlic sauce.
