Sweet Chilli Sauce

Condiments are a great thing to make from scratch...especially if you can use organic ingredients!  This is a very simple chilli sauce that looks great bottled! Ingredients 500g long fresh red chillies, stems trimmed 3 garlic cloves, peeled 750ml white vinegar 645g caster sugar

Method 1. Halve 100g of the chillies and place in the bowl of a food processor. Halve and de-seed the remaining chillies. Coarsely chop and place in the food processor. Add garlic and 250ml white vinegar. Process until finely chopped. 2. Place the chilli mixture, remaining vinegar and caster sugar in a large saucepan over a low heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. 3. Increase heat to high and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 35-40 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Pour into sterilised airtight bottles and seal.
