Ingredients

  • 20 red chillies , stems removed, deseeded for a milder sauce
  • 1 finger sized piece of ginger , peeled and roughly chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves , roughly chopped
  • 100ml white wine or cider vinegar
  • 200g white caster sugar

Method

  • STEP 1

    Tip all the ingredients except the sugar into a mini chopper or blender and blend to a chunky sauce. Scrape the contents into a shallow saucepan with the sugar and 100ml water and bring to a simmer.

  • STEP 2

    Simmer for 15 mins, stirring occasionally until it becomes syrupy. Keeping a close eye on it, continue to simmer and stir for 5 mins more until it easily coats the back of the spoon and you see the bottom of the pan when you stir. Leave to cool and infuse for 1-2 hours. Will keep in a small sterilised jar for up to a month.
