Memories of burnt sausages with store-bought tomato sauce are fondly etched in my mind, but a modern barbecue needs a more fiery kick.

Ingredients

10 red chillis, roughly chopped and deseeded, if desired

500ml rice wine vinegar

330g caster sugar

4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

1 tbsp sea salt

Method

Place all ingredients in a blender and pulse until garlic and chillies are in small pieces (but not smooth).

Place sauce in a saucepan over a medium heat, bring to the boil and cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Reduce heat to low and cook for 20-30 minutes, or until sauce thickens. Pour into a sterilised glass bottle or jar and allow to cool before using.
