Rose harissa chilli sauce - a real 'knock your socks off' chilli sauce with plenty of flavour - influenced by the traditional North African harissa sauce. Great for marinades, as a dipping sauce or just serving as a condiment with your food.
How to make hot sauce from dried hot peppers (in this case we used morita peppers which are smoke-dried red jalapenos). The final produce was similar to adobo sauce; rich, smoky and slightly sour from the ferment.
One night at dinner I was looking at the bottle of Rancho Gordo hot sauce and realized there wasn't anything in the ingredients that I didn't already have in my cupboard. So, I went to work on re-creating it in my own kitchen.
It turns out that five ingredients really are all that are needed to make a flavorful, almost shockingly red sauce that stands up to the stuff in the bottle. Best of all, you can tweak the heat up or down with the selection of peppers.
Hold on to your hats when you dip a chip in this one! Mixes well with Mexican dishes or just dip and enjoy.
Great flavor. Change up the pepper to suit your own tastes. Great gift for your favorite friend.
