XO Chilli Sauce


WELL, if you love heat...you have come to the right place. This is not a completely authentic XO sauce, but it certainly packs a punch. It will keep for ages in the fridge, largely because of the heat in it and as long as you use hot sterlised jars to pour the hot (as in ‘temperature' hot) sauce into...they will vacuum seal and there will be no issues. Splash it around at a BBQ, use it to marinate meats, use it as a condiment or an addition to mayonnaise, dressings or sauces...at your own peril. Yes, you have been warned. (Don’t email me!)
