Recipe: Hot sauce with fennel seeds

Hot Sauces
September 07, 2009


Chili Pepper FilesLast year a friend gave me some Piri Piri Chili seeds from Portugal. They're hot chili peppers from Capsicum Frutescens species (like the famous Tabasco). The plant produces small pods 3 cm (1.2 in) long, that ripe from green to red.


I growed them and with the harvest I prepared an hot sauce, really quick, to serve with meat or bruschetta.
