Coriander and Garlic Hot sauce

Posted on: March 1, 2007

I just made the most tasty spicy sauce, it looks like thick green slime but it tastes lovely.

Here’s what I made it out of:

  • 1 Bunch of Fresh Coriander (a good fist full)
  • 1 Rocoto Chilli and a load of small Cayenne chillies
  • 4 or 5 large cloves of Garlic
  • 1 small Carrot
  • 1 teaspoon of Cumin powder
  • about 3 or 4 Tablespoons of soft brown sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon of Honey
  • Half a teaspoon of my own ground mixed Chilli powder
  • 1 Teaspoon of salt
  • about 100ml of Cider Vinegar
  • about 100ml of Lemon juice
  • half a teaspoon of Ground Ginger
  • Black Pepper corns to taste (so that probably means about a teaspoon full)
  • a couple of Cardamom pods
  • and about a teaspoon of mixed Pickling spices

It was all slapped in the blender and whizzed up until smooth-ish, then brought to the boil in a pan and simmered for 2-3 minutes before bottling in a sterilized glass beer bottle with the old fashioned style of toggle fastener thingy! (like a Grolsch bottle) It made about 375ml of sauce. 🙂
Its tangy and sweet with a lovely coriander and garlic taste and the heat of the chillies comes through after. I have no idea how long it will keep but I intend to leave it a couple of weeks at least before tasting it properly.
