Loved this recipe. Did 1 humongous red capsicum and 4 small green chillies as it’s what they had at market. Blitzed chilli seeds and all. Love that I can make it gf and it’s cheaper than supermarket bought

I love making this sweet chilli sauce and so does my family and friends, i used about 20 to 30 mild chillies this time and also have made this with ghost chillies, very easy and simple to make.
