With a name like that, how could I resist? (Recipe from 'How to Store Your Garden Produce' by Piers Warren.)
I roughly chopped an onion, 2 cloves of garlic, about 10-20 chillis and a pepper. I didn't have quite enough chilli so topped up with some dried chillis. Obediently I left the seeds out of the mix... (I'll dry them & try sowing them instead)
Then I put everything into a small saucepan with a teaspoon of sugar, a teaspoon of salt & 150ml of vinegar.
I brought it all to the boil & simmered for 30 mins. In order to save my eyes & my nose, I kept the lid firmly on! (Except to take a photo...)
|The Aztecs used to punish their children by holding them over cooking chillis...|
I left it to cool, then blitzed in the food processed.
Finally bottled...(2 small bottles were filled but I only photographed one)
|It lives up to it's name!|
In anticipation of another batch I've started sowing seeds for this year's chilli crop...
Fascinated by the UK/USA spelling variation of chilli/chili...I sought the answer here.
