homemade sriracha

I saw this video recently on how to peel a whole head of garlic in 10 seconds. Yeah, there’s something out there faster than smashing a clove with the flat side of a knife, who knew? And am I the only one thinking that smashing a whole head of garlic with the palm of your hand could be a painful thing? Easy, peasy? maybe.

How to Peel a Head of Garlic in Less Than 10 Seconds from SAVEUR.com on Vimeo.

As I recently bought a large bag of fresh red jalepenos from Zion Korean Market, that along with my newfound garlic skills, it was time I test out Lee’s homemade sriracha recipe featured in Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook, My Father’s Daughter. The sauce turned out not bad, I liked the idea of blanching the garlic cloves twice and it made sense after seeing a full cup of garlic cloves that that alone instead of a cup plus a quarter cup would be garlicky enough, hands down the consensus was less is more. Try it, it keeps in the refrigerator really well and there’s no preservatives and unnecessary crap that you find in the store bought bottles, bonus!
