  • 8 red Thai chilies, stems removed
  • 10 cloves garlic, skins removed

Place chilies, garlic, ginger, lime juice, lemon grass, and cilantro in a food processor. Blend until it forms a coarse paste.

In a sauce pan, dissolve sugar in water over medium heat. Cook on high until light caramel forms, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in paste and bring to boil. Add cider vinegar and fish sauce. Boil for another two minutes.

Makes about 3 cups. Can be sealed in jars and stored
