Chilli sauce with cherries

Tasty chilli sauce for dips, burgers, pretty much anything really.


  • 3 Birds eye chillies
  • 4 Normal chillies
  • 1 Red capsicum
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 150g Fresh cherries, stoned
  • 3 tsp Demerara sugar
  • 100ml Cider vinegar

Chop all of the ingredients, roughly. Remove the seeds from the chillies (unless you want extra heat). Note, be careful handling the chillies, either wear latex gloves of make sure you wash you hands thoroughly after handling the chillies.

Heat 3tsp of olive oil in the pan and add the garlic. Cook for about 30 seconds on a light heat then add the remaining ingredients. Bring the sauce to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes, until the sauce has reduced and the capsicum is soft. Transfer to a blender and blend for 30 seconds.

To store the chilli sauce transfer to a sterilised jar whilst still hot. The sauce will keep in a sealed jar for a couple of months. Alternatively keep any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator for immediate use for a week.
