Why would you make your sweet chili sauce?

  • because you have plenty of chilies in your garden or…
  • you have read the ingredients on the sweet chili sauce bottle you bought at the supermarket
  • because natural homegrown and homemade food is always best!
Okay, I got lots of chillies in my garden but I also checked the ingredients on the bottle from the store-bought one and I don’t like any of the additives like flavours, colours, and preservatives….!
