Thai Sweet Chilli Sauce:
10 cloves of garlic, peeled
4 large red chillies, stems removed
3 thumbs of fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped
1 thumb of galangal, peeled and roughly chopped
8 lime leaves
3 lemon-grass stems; remove the two outside leaves, discard the top third of the stem and finely slice the remainder
1 cup fresh coriander leaves

Put in a food processor and puree to a coarse paste.

Then add: 1+1/2 cups castor sugar together with 4 tablespoons water in a saucepan, place on a moderate heat, stirring well until the sugar dissolves. When it has, remove the spoon and turn up the heat to full. Boil for 5-8 minutes, do not stir, but of course, don't let the caramel burn either.

Stir in the paste, bring the sauce back to the boil and add:
100 ml cider vinegar
50 ml Asian fish sauce
50 ml tamari

Return to the boil and simmer for 1 minute. Pour in jars, and leave to cool before eating.
