How to make wallacespace chilli sauce


Recipe for one Kilo

1000 grams long red chillies, de-seeded and roughly chopped
6 cloves garlic
700 ml vegetable oil
4 teaspoons sea salt
2 tablespoon sugar
5 tablespoons yellow bean soy sauce

Process chillies and garlic in the blender, gradually adding the oil. Blend until you have a smooth consistency. Put the chilli puree in a saucepan with salt and sugar and cook out for 45 mins or until the rawness has been cooked out. Remove from heat and stir in yellow bean soy sauce.

Health benefits of chilli peppers

The most valuable characteristic of chilli peppers is the chemical compound capsaicin. It is capsaicin that gives peppers their distinct taste, fiery heat and a number of health benefits. Capsaicin is concentrated in the inner white pith or rib of the chilli pepper, not in the seeds.

So what are the benefits?

Capsaicin is a potent anti-inflammatory agent. Research suggests it may help reduce arthritis pain and inflammation.

Boasting high amounts of vitamin C and antioxidants, chillies have been found to help prevent lifestyle diseases including some cancers and stomach ulcers.

They also help to keep your skin and hair healthy and glowing. (Tip: to ensure your chillis keep hold of their Vitamin D make sure they are stored in a dark, cool place).

Chilli peppers can also be a great, natural way to support your cardiovascular system and prevent heart disease. Chilli peppers are high in potassium, which is a mineral with a number of functions in the human body.

Chillis are also a great natural source of iron and copper which can help with new blood cell formation and treat symptoms of anaemia and fatigue.
