Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons finely diced fresh red chillies
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 cup sea salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 120°C.
  2. Finely dice your chillies.
  3. Place chillies in a mortar and pestle with sugar, salt and mix thoroughly.
  4. Mash and grind your chillies, sugar, and salt thoroughly – the salt should turn a nice pinkish colour. (It's a lot easier to pulse it in the blender if you wish)
  5. Line a shallow baking tray with baking paper and then put your chilli salt onto the tray in a single thin layer.
  6. Place in oven and cook for about 1.5 hours or until the salt and chillies are dried out.
  7. Store in a sterilised container (This will keep for quite a few months as the salt is the preserving agent).
Notes
Adjust sugar and chilli proportions according to taste
For and excellent dip for fresh pineapple, combine 1 tablespoon of your chilli salt with 1 tablespoon sugar.
