Homemade Sriracha Sauce

HOMEMADE SRIRACHA SAUCE


Description


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound of chilis
  • 1/2 head of garlic, peeled and minced
  • 3 TB palm sugar
  • 1/2 TB salt
  • 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar

Instructions

  1. Put on a pair of plastic gloves and make sure your prep area is well-ventilated. Destem and half the chilis. Place in a blender with the garlic, sugar and salt. Puree until well-blended.
  2. Using a spatula, scape the contents into a glass container and cover. Store it at room temperature, stirring it once a day for seven days. This will allow the flavors to blend and slightly mellow.
  3. After a week, pour the puree with the vinegar into a small pot over medium heat. Bring it to a boil and let it simmer for about five minutes.
  4. Transfer the contents to a blender and puree again for two minutes. Strain the puree through a fine-mesh strainer, retaining a bit of the pulp in the end if you’d like. Keep it stored in the refrigerator.

Notes

*Habaneros are seriously hot and the fumes alone can cause coughing, sneezing and skin irritation. Wear plastic cloves when handling them and always work in a well-ventilated area during prep.
