One Planet Living: Day 25: 2017
Made the kids pancakes for breakfast this morning and we used up the very last drop of the organic apple syrup. It was in a nice bottle so spent some time contemplating it before deciding what I could fill with it.
At first I thought about a flavoured oil or vinegar - but that would be something I'd tend to not use. Instead I decided to make some chilli sauce. I had half a bag of chillies in the freezer from last summer that really need used up and some dried ones from 2 years ago. Waste not want not...
Here is the recipe I used:
1 cup chillis chopped roughly
200g of tomatoes (I used one of the massive heritage ones from the market)
1/4 c white vinegar
1/4 c sugar
1/4 tsp salt
3 cloves of garlic roughly chopped
Pop all the ingredients into a pot and boil for 7 minutes, cool for 5min, blend in food processor, then decant into a hot clean bottle. Results - looks good. Taste test - blow your head off hot - but then I like it like that!
