At home, my sweetheart and I usually opt for foods that are less refined, more wholesome or somehow better for the environment. But when it comes to certain specialty items, like condiments, we can’t always find great substitutes.
Hot sauce is at the top of this list. Every so often we’ve been spoiled with home-made hot sauce (from my lovely friends at Three Sister’s Organic Farm) but we’ve mostly resorted to cooking with high quality cayenne instead. (It’s really not the same.)
So when I came across this amazing looking recipe for home-made sriracha today on The Chalkboard, I got so excited. 5 simple ingredients, a short fermentation period and no preservatives – this is looking like it may become a staple in our household especially when the cooler season sets in. Yum!
