Beginners guide to making Chilli Sauce
If you’ve never made chilli sauce before, it’s surprisingly easy. But the challenge is to give it depth of flavour and not just a chilli burn. Check out this guide below and give it a try. Maybe you’d like to enter this year’s competition with your results 😉
To make a chilli sauce, you should have each of the components below.
There are a huge variety of chilli peppers from all over the world, each with their own flavour notes and heat. You can use dried or fresh. Scotch bonnets and haberneros are popular choices for their fruity heat, but you don’t need many! Take out the seeds if you want a less spicy kick.
Unless you’re wanting a nuclear-strength sauce that will make a grown man cry with just a few drops, you’re going to need to add body to your sauce. Onions and tomatoes are popular choices, but you could also use sweet peppers or fruit. Mango and pineapple make good additions.
