Homemade Chilli Sauce - This homemade sriracha recipe blends plenty of hot red chillies and garlic with a touch of sugar, salt and vinegar for a sweet, tart, spicy taste sensation! By @deliciouscratch | familycuisine.net This homemade chilli sauce recipe blends plenty of hot red chillies and garlic with a touch of sugar, salt and vinegar for a sweet, tart, spicy sriracha taste sensation!

My partner Lee loves sriracha chilli sauce. No matter what food we prepare, no matter how delicately the flavours might be balanced, no matter how much chilli might already be in the dish – out comes the bottle for a quick dousing. Having watched that plastic bottle moving around my fridge for the past few years, the time finally came to have a go at making it.

Homemade Chilli Sauce - This homemade sriracha recipe blends plenty of hot red chillies and garlic with a touch of sugar, salt and vinegar for a sweet, tart, spicy taste sensation! By @deliciouscratch | familycuisine.net These types of chilli sauce usually call for red jalapeños, but they are very difficult to find in the UK, so I went for my favourite go-to hot chilli – Thai bird’s eye chillies. They can be found in large packets in Asian shops (or in much smaller, more expensive packets in your favourite supermarket) and they pack a fragrant, floral, fruity punch. You can substitute pretty much any chilli you want if these are unavailable, just remember that the spicier the chilli, the spicier the sauce (and vice versa). If you use very mild chillies – so often what is available in the UK – then your sauce will also be very mild. Generally I opt for the tastiest chilli that can be bought reasonably in bulk, whatever that happens to be in my locale.

Homemade Chilli Sauce - This homemade sriracha recipe blends plenty of hot red chillies and garlic with a touch of sugar, salt and vinegar for a sweet, tart, spicy taste sensation! By @deliciouscratch | familycuisine.net The only really taxing part of this recipe is deseeding the chillies. Even pretty mild chillies will need deseeding when used in these quantities and concentrated as they cook down. So for my fiddly, narrow bird’s eye chillies I enlisted Lee’s help – well he will be the one doing the vast majority of the eating!

Homemade Chilli Sauce - This homemade sriracha recipe blends plenty of hot red chillies and garlic with a touch of sugar, salt and vinegar for a sweet, tart, spicy taste sensation! By @deliciouscratch | familycuisine.net A recipe like homemade sriracha, one that calls for cutting, scraping and generally fiddling with large amounts of fresh chilli, is one that I would always use gloves for. I have tried without – think days, yes DAYS, of deep, burning chilli pain, especially under the fingernails. Chilli pain where no cooling, neutralising yoghurt or crème fraîche can reach. And just when you think you’re safe, a little brush of the finger near the eye and BAM!

By @deliciouscratch | familycuisine.net The Marigold extra safe gloves I was sent to try are great for this. Latex-free and powder-free, they are designed for the preparation of food – latex can not only cause allergies in those wearing the gloves, but can transfer into the food as well, as can the powder that is often used to line disposable gloves. I can also attest that they do not tear easily – I definitely jabbed them quite a few times with my sharp knife as I was deseeding, but no holes were forthcoming.

By @deliciouscratch | familycuisine.net Working with such spicy chillies, I removed all of the seeds and membranes from all my chillies, but if you’re working with less spicy chillies, you may want to leave some as-is.

Homemade Chilli Sauce - This homemade sriracha recipe blends plenty of hot red chillies and garlic with a touch of sugar, salt and vinegar for a sweet, tart, spicy taste sensation! By @deliciouscratch | familycuisine.net This homemade chilli sauce is best made with a high-powered blender – if you do, there will be no need to sieve the sauce before bottling – but if you don’t, just blend it as well as you can with what you have and sieve out any bits you don’t want in your sauce. I would do this after cooking, as those bits will add flavour to your sauce.
