YUMMY DIPPING SAUCE/GLAZE
Like the heat do ya?..I say bring it!
Here is a very simple dipping sauce or glaze for you to try.
It’s quite good on it’s own, but you can really doll it up as well.
OPTIONS: Use a balsamic vinegar, or an apple cider vinegar.
Different vinegars will create very interesting variations of this!
Serrano peppers are the low end of the heat, Jalapeno’s a little warmer
But you can go hotter as you desire!
You can also try a ½ to 1 Table spoon of regular soy sauce as well!
This recipe is wide open to your culinary creativity.
I threw in some orange zest and a little bit of dried cranberry bits!
•½ tspn of minced garlic or 3 large garlic cloves, peeled or – Add to taste!
•2 red Jalapeño or Serrano peppers, deseeded (See note #1 below.)
•¼ cup vinegar
•½ cup sugar
•¾ cup water
•½ tablespoon salt
•1 ¾ tablespoon cornstarch or potato starch (See note #2 below.)
•2 tablespoons water if it’s too thick
1.In the blender, purée together all the ingredients, except for the last two.
2.Transfer the mixture to a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Lower the heat to medium and simmer until the mixture thickens up a bit and the garlic-pepper bits begin to soften, about 3 minutes.
3.Combine the cornstarch and water to make a slurry. Whisk in the cornstarch mixture and continue to simmer one more minute. The cornstarch will help the sauce to thicken slightly thereby causing nice suspension of the garlic-pepper bits; otherwise, you get a thin sauce with all the little pieces floating on the surface.
4.Let cool completely before storing in a glass jar and refrigerate
