Fresh hot pepper sauce
Web and I discussed about making
fresh chili sauce sometime ago. I forgot what she said
about how she make her red hot pepper sauce
except it is delicious. But I vaguely remember
some ingredients she mentioned, so here's my version.
Hot peppers---coarsely chopped in food processor
Fermented black beans---whole, rinsed & towel dried
Liquor---your favorite choice, about 2 tbsp
Cooking oil---your choice, I used canola
Sesame oil---about 20% of cooking oil
Salt to taste
Heat oil to stir fry garlic and black beans until fragrant.
Add chopped hot peppers, salt, and liquor
cook on medium low heat until
the peppers become mushy and saucy,
remove hot sauce from heat and
stir in sesame oil, let cool and bottle.
If you make large amount of this sauce for later use
don't forget to add enough oil to top off the sauce
and to prevent spoilage.
