green O.T.

growing up my friends and i would lovingly call sriracha "O.T." as an abbreviation of "truong ot sriracha".  in case there ever happens to be a sriracha shortage (heaven forbid), you can be equipped with this recipe and make your own.  i used thai green chilies for this, but track down the red ones to make classic OT sauce.

green "O.T." 

3/4 lb. green thai chilies (some red mixed in is ok)

2 cloves garlic

1 1/4 t kosher salt

1 T brown sugar

1/4 c distilled white vinegar

H20

method

1) combine chilies, garlic, salt sugar in a blender or food processor.  adding just enough water as necessary, blend chilies to a coarse texture 

2) transfer to glass jar covered with plastic wrap

3) leave at room temp for 3-4 days, you should see small bubbles around the chilies

4) on last day, put fermented mixture + vinegar in small saucepan and bring to a boil, then simmer for 5 min

5) cool slightly, then puree in blender until smooth.  add water as needed to achieve desired consistency.  adjust with salt, sugar or vinegar to your liking.

*weenies beware this sauce is HOT
