Why I Made this Homemade Sriracha Sauce

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.

How to Make Sriracha Sauce

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.

  • 2 tsp fish sauce
