Yields20 Servings

Sweet Chilli Sauce
 6 large red chillies (remove half the seeds, if you don’t like it too spicy)
 4 cloves garlic
 100 ml (100g) filtered water
 1 tbsp fish sauce (optional)
BBQ Sauce
 2 cups very ripe and cooked tomatoes, pureed
 1/2 cup blackstrap molasses
 1/2 tsp Tabasco sauce
 1/2 tsp allspice
 1 tsp chilli powder
 1 tsp paprika
 1/2 tsp nutmeg
 1/2 tsp cumin powder

Sweet Chill Sauce - Stove top method

Finely chop the chillies and garlic, or place in a food processor and chop.

Cook for approximately 45 minutes until it reduces and thickens.

4

8

Turning the Sweet Chilli Sauce into Chilli Jam
11

The great thing about this sauce, is that it is only a matter of cooking it longer to make a chilli jam. Cook it for an extra 10 mins at step 4, then you will have a beautiful chilli jam to use.

Tip – To test the consistency of the sauce or the jam, put about a tablespoon onto a plate and let cool. If it is at the consistency you like it is done. If it is too runny then cook for a few more minutes and re-test.

BBQ Sauce
12

Place all the ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer on a low heat until thickened slightly.

13

Once the sugar has dissolved and all the ingredients are combined, use a stick blender to blitz the mixture together.

14

Pour the sauce through a fine mesh sieve to remove any lumps or tomato skin and collect the sauce in a bowl.

15

Allow it to cool before pouring into a clean glass bottle.

16

Store in the fridge.
