What are this? Birds eye chilies waiting to become Mauritian hot sauce. Mmmmmm
Keep ya ginger TIGHT!
You can't go wrong with garlic. And if people don't wanna make out with you because of it then they're total dicks. FYI.
I didn't have thin skinned lemons but these worked, I just modified the recipe a little.
Take the stems off the chilies
Lots of heat. Maybe too much?
Peel and chop ginger.
Peel and chop garlic
It took me two Golden Girls episodes to get all the seeds scraped out of these little fuckers. But I did it. I also didn't give a frigg if a few seeds stayed behind.
THIS is how much seed was taken out. Seriously. Woulda burnt the face right off ya.
Garlic and ginger in the food processor. I chopped the lemon after cutting away the peel on 2/3 of them because I didn't want too much pith/peel but otherwise I would have left a little more on.
Add chilies and lemon to the processor
Process the living goodness right out of that business.
This is what you get, chilies.
Add oil to a pan and turn up to medium high heat. Add the chili paste when oil is hot.
Stir constantly and cook for 3-5 min until color gets more orangey. Make sure your kitchen is ventilated or do this on your knees with a bandana soaked in lemon juice or white vinegar over your mouth.
In a sterilized bottle, topped with oil and a little more salt. Keep refrigerated and eat it up!
