I decided to try making gluten-free thai sweet chili sauce and the results were better then what I had been buying. By making it from scratch, I am able to adjust the sweetness and spiciness to my preferences. All you need is some simple ingredients and a spice grinder or mini food processor to chop up the chilis extra fine. I use this exact spice grinder when I make my Thai sauce.

Is there a bottled sauce or condiment that you’d like to be able to make yourself?

Chilies are available all year long in grocery stores, however later in the summer months, closer to September, are the best time to go to the Farmers Markets for fresh organic chilies.

  2. Add the chopped peppers, garlic and the rest of the ingredients except the cornstarch and 2 Tbsp water to a saucepan.

In my gluten-free recipe I used monkfruit sweetener to cut back on the sugar in the sauce, but feel free to use white sugar if you want. I also like my sauce to not to be too thick, but again add more cornstarch if you want a thicker sweet chili sauce.

Gluten-Free Harissa

Gluten Free Harissa


Harissa is a hot chili paste common in Moroccan and Tunisian cuisine. It can be added to soups, pastas and meats for added spice.
Harissa is available at specialty stores but I find a lot of them have gluten in them. However, It’s super easy and inexpensive to make.
As I said in earlier blogs, 2012 is the year to go back to basics and make your own homemade sauces with fresh organic ingredients.
What would you like to learn to make?
Anyone interested in canning seasonal vegetables?
 
I understand that we are living in a world where our lives can be busy, but I have to tell you truthfully that I have always baked and cooked from scratch for my family. My kids didn’t go to school with Oreos or Lunchables. They always had homemade cookies, fresh bread, vegetables or fruit in their lunch.
Even when we were on a tight budget, I always had flour, sugar, butter and eggs in my house. I could always make pancakes for supper, make a batch of fresh cinnamon buns for lunch, or a homemade vegetable soup.
 
I don’t understand how families can afford to eat out all the time and honestly why you would want to anyway?
Does that come from a grandma who used to make fresh bread every day? From a family who had dessert at every meal? Who knew how to make sauerkraut and perogies as a child? Who learned how to make an angel food cake from scratch without measuring anything?
 
Maybe.
 
Having to live gluten free is helping me get back to basics again.
Read ingredient labels on processed food lately? It’s absolutely crazy what is added to the simplest of foods. This is why we need to get back to locally grown, organic, whole foods.
