    I had a go at this today. I love sweet chilli sauce and decided to have a go at making my own.

    Measurements are approximations, at the end of the day, it's all down to personal taste.

    1 red pepper
    3 cloves garlic
    3 chilli peppers
    1 & 1/2 - 2 cups water,
    1/4 cup white wine vinegar
    3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
    Large handful coriander as I love the stuff

    Blitz with a food processor or stick blender & put in a pan. Add sweetener, now this is the tricky part. As there is vinegar in it, you add enough sweetener for your own taste. I added about 6 tablepoons. Add 6 tablespoons fish sauce (1pp) freshly squeezed lime juice (I grated the zest & added that too to make it slightly more zingier.
    Once boiled, reduce & let it simmer until it is reduced & thickens slightly. (i took it off the beat after 10-15 mins)
    It made 1 & 1/2 jam jars. I will be taking some with me tomorrow for my lunch as I have made a prawn noodle salad & will pour sweet chilli sauce over it just before I eat it. Delish!!
    Im a total sweet chilli addict!
    This sounds amazing!
    have corriander growing outside
    ZOINK!

    Thanks for this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Me too!!! I love chilli sauce & thought I would never have it again for as long as I'm following the plan, but I was determined to find a free version. I found 2 recipes on the internet & used some ideas from both. One wasn't cooked but had a raw taste if you know what I mean? So I chucked it into a pan & what a difference :-D i've posted a pic too to let you see what it looks like. The only ingredient that uses points is the fish sauce, at only 1pp for 1 & 1/2 jars, happy days x

    Oh wow it looks soooo good!

    I generally avoid fish sauce so its probably the one thing that I would leave out.

    Im sooo going to make this ASAP!
    I've been scrimping by on 1tbsp of it with salads and its just no use. Essence of sweet chilli but nothing close to what I LOVE!

    Thank you thank you thank you!

    You don't taste fish, it enhances the flavour. It's like adding a teaspoon of sugar to tomato based sauces, it doesn't taste sweet, it brings out the flavour.
    As I said, it can be adapted to suit your taste, make it hotter, stronger flavoured, weaker, whatever.
    Let me know what you think x

    Aww, I didn't realise. Yep soy would be a good substitute. Again, it's about adapting recipes to suit you. Enjoy :-)
