Vietnamese Pepper Sauce/Condiment Recipe?

tommyskitchen Jul 16, 2012 08:25 AM

I picked up some "Unlabeled" pepper starts at a Vietnamese grocery this Spring - I was told they were "spicy" by the folks there, but i don't know the exact kind - They are growing small and green and plentiful, and may be a Bird's-eye or similar.

Since I have so many, I would like to can them as a sauce or condiment - My original thought was to roughly chop and store in Vinegar.

Does anyone have a good recipe they'd like to share?

    Here is my go to recipe for a generic hot sauce.
    I have made it with Habaneros and with our local Hawaiian Chile pepper.
    It was from Saveur magazine a few years ago.

      Here is a link to two recipes that are simple and work great.
      The first one can be canned and holds longer than the second.
