    I received chili vinegar for Christmas. What do I do with it?

  2. Val says:

    Chilli vinegar can be used in pickles, chutneys and sauces. It can be drizzled onto salads and pizzas to give them a bit of  clout. It’s also useful in stir-frys. In small quantities it’s a handy addition for casseroles, curries, fish dishes and savoury sauces. Anything that you want to add a bit of "bite" too.

    Hi, I have a surplus of dried chillies left from last season. I am considering making a very hot chilli vinegar for my making my own super hot pickled onions. Is this a good idea or would I be better off just putting say a quarter of a chilli in each jar of onions?? The chillies I’m using are dried red habeneros and bhut jolokias.

    Hi there! I have whole chilies in a large jar with vinegar, which a friend of ours gave us once for Christmas. I have carried it around our moves and now finally want to do something with it, any ideas? Eating them straight out of the jar is not an option, not so tasty, but maybe a paste or a chili tapenade? Anybody any experience? Thanks a bunch
