    Sometimes the CSA box is full of, well, random veggies in such quantities that it’s hard to know what to do with them.

    Last week, the box came with a half-pound of hot peppers. I remembered a few weeks ago that Suzie’s Farm had posted up a recipe for sriracha on their blog and decided to give it a try.

    In essence, the sriracha (or rooster sauce) is nothing more than hot chilies cooked with a few spices and blended.

    Although Suzie’s recipe was pretty good, it wasn’t paleo. This version reflects a few changes I made.

    I halved the recipe based on the number of peppers I received, but I’ll give you the full-size version here.

    I didn’t add any sweetener to my Homemade Sriracha Sauce, but you could add a bit of coconut sugar or honey to balance out the flavors.

    All I did was cook the peppers down in a saucepan.

    Then, I pureed the mixture and strained it for a smooth final consistency.

    Be sure you remove the membranes and seeds if you’d like your Homemade Sriracha Sauce less spicy.

    Prep Time 10 mins
    Cook Time 5 mins
    Total Time 15 mins
    Yields 1.5 cups     adjust servings

    Ingredients

    • 1 lb hot pepper mix
    • 3 cloves garlic
    • 1/2 tbsp sea salt
    • 2 tsp fish sauce
    • 1/3 cup white vinegar
    • 1/4 cup water

    Instructions

    Cut the tops off the chilies and chop them coarsely. The more of the seeds and white membranes you remove, the less spicy it will be.

    Combine chilies, garlic, salt, fish sauce, white vinegar and approximately ¼ cup water in a saucepan.

    Bring mixture to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for a few minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

    Add the mixture to the food processor or Vitamix, blending and adding water if necessary to thin the mixture a bit. Total processing time will be a couple minutes.

    If a smooth consistency is desired, strain the puree through a sieve and discard seeds.

    Store in the refrigerator.

        1. Actually, the brand isn’t sriracha, it’s Huy Fong. Sriracha is the type of hot sauce. Nice site, I really like the PDF downloads for your recipes, I hope a lot more blogs/sites do that.

      1. Hi David,

        You could probably use a variety from the hot pepper section of your local market (I would just stay away from things like habanero/scotch bonnet and try to mix hot/sweet).
