This is a fairly easy sauce to make and requires very few ingredients.
The sauce that I make is slightly different from traditional but produces a very good hot sauce.
two bulbs of garlic, peeled
25 Birdseye chilies
4 tablespoons of white vinegar
1 teaspoon of sugar
2 tablespoons lime juice
¼ cup water
take all the ingredients and put them into a high speed blender and purée until smooth.
Transfer from the blender to a small pot and bring to a boil and then reduce and simmer for at least 30 minutes, stirring constantly.
When it is done let it cool and then put into a sealed jar in the fridge. Should last at least several weeks.
