10 dried red chillies, soaked in 100ml hot water
10 large fresh red chillies, chopped into large pieces
7 fat cloves garlic, peeled
Juice 1 lemon
250ml water
1/2 tsp salt
70g sugar
2 tsp cornflour mixed with 1 tbsp cold water

This super-hot garlic sauce is a play on sweet chilli sauce but with added fire. Being liberal with the garlic means this sauce packs a punch. It makes the perfect gift for friends and family who love all things spicy. Pour it into a 550ml Kilner square clip top bottle and add a warning label... just in case!

Place the dried chillies (and soaking water), fresh chillies, garlic, lemon juice, water, salt and sugar in a blender and puree until smooth.

Pour the blended mixture into a saucepan and simmer (covered) on a low heat for 20 minutes.

Finally, whisk in the cornflour mixture and watch it thicken slightly.

Pour the hot sauce into sterilised Kilner jars using the Kilner jam funnel and allow to cool.

Store in the fridge for up to 2 months.
