Directions

icon 1

Chop the chili peppers, making sure to remove the seeds. Place the chili peppers in your Mortier Pilon fermentation jar. Cover with salt. Make sure to leave ¾ of an inch (2 centimeters) of headspace between the mixture and the rim of the jar.

Let the mixture ferment at room temperature, covered, for 4 to 5 weeks, or until small bubbles have stopped appearing on the surface. If, after 24 hours, the liquid that has appeared does not cover all of the mixture, add some water and a pinch of salt.

Transfer the fermented chili peppers and the brine to a food processor. Pulse for 3 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth. Add the vinegar and pulse for 30 more seconds to incorporate it into the sauce. Refrigerate or serve.
