No one will believe that this Thai Sweet Chili Sauce is not only homemade but also free of refined sugar! This easy homemade chili sauce made with only 4 ingredients will become a pantry staple!
Roughly chop ⅙th of the chilies (about 1.5 oz). Deseed remaining chilies and chop them roughly. Make sure that you DO NOT touch your eyes while handling the chillies!
Place chilies, garlic cloves and ½ cup rice vinegar in the bowl of your food processor. Process until finely chopped.
Transfer chilies mixture into a medium saucepan, then add honey and remaining vinegar. Cook on low heat for about 5 minutes or until honey is dissolved.
Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 to 25 minutes or until sauce thickens but is still a bit runny (the sauce will thicken while cooling). Let sauce cool and transfer it to an air-tight container(s). It will keep in the fridge for weeks.
If you like your sauce very mild, you could actually remove all the seeds. I personally love a little kick so I kept about ⅙th of the seeds. Your call! If you're not sure and your sauce ends up being way too hot for you, no worries, you can always dilute it afterwards with lime, olive oil, coconut milk or even water!
