Sweet Thai Chili Sauce
1 cup unbleached cane sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1)In a saucepan, comine the sugar, water, vinegar, garlic and salt.
2)Bring to a boil over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved.
3)Turn to medium-low and add the red pepper flakes.
4)keep cooking until the sauce is a little syrupy (18-25 min).
5)Let cool to room temperature, then keep refrigerate in an airtight jar for up to three weeks.
6)When using, heat a little bit until it thins to a slightly syrupy consistency.
I tend to freeze this in ice cube trays and microwave for 15 seconds.
This is amazing over rice and veggies, on a burger instead of ketchup, and to dip fries in!
