Recipe type: condiment
Serves: approx 2 cups
Ingredients
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 5cm piece of ginger, peeled
  • 120g long red chillies (10-15 chillies)
  • 10 medjool (fresh) dates
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1-2 cups water
Directions
  1. Thermomix version:
  2. Place all ingredients (1 cup of water) into the thermomix.
  3. Blitz for 20 seconds building up to speed 10 or until smooth.
  4. Cook on Varoma speed 2 for 20mins with the cup out and the basket resting on the lid to prevent splatter. The aromas are very strong, so it's best to place the Thermomix by an open window or under the exhaust.
  5. If you wish to thin the sauce out, scrape down the sides and add up to another 1 cup of water. Blend until smooth.
  6. Place into clean jars and store in the fridge.
  7. Stove top version:
  8. Place all ingredients (1 cup of water) into a food processor/blender.
  9. Blitz for 20 seconds on building up to speed 10 or until smooth.
  10. Pour into saucepan, bring to a simmer and simmer for 20 mins. The sauce should thicken. The aromas are very strong, so it's best to have the exhause on high.
  11. If you wish to thin the sauce out, scrape down the sides and add up to another 1 cup of water. Stir until smooth.
  12. Pour into jars and store in the fridge.
Notes
This makes quite a hot sweet chilli sauce, for a milder version reduce the amount of chillies and/or increase honey and use sparingly.
