Chili Sauce and Hot Peppers
Today is my annual chili sauce cook-off and the house smells like fall. With only three of us at home now, I do little in the way of canning. Not that I ever did a lot like my mother and my sister-in-law Shirley did in the past! The Becka loves, I should say LOVES this chili sauce and it looks like the entree when she puts it on her plate. She has eaten pickled things and all her veggies since she was a baby...but no meat please. Grandma made a big batch of chili sauce and I remember it being served as a condiment at almost every meal. Her recipe has lots of fruit in it as well as the peppers and tomatoes.
Raita as a cooling sauce for the mouth.
I used only 2 hot peppers in the chili sauce today and once again didn't wear gloves. But the peppers must be mild this year. I have posted a reduced sized recipe on my recipe blog.
Got to get back to the stove...!
