Easy to make and really great to have hanging around, you can add chopped salted chillies to steamed and stir-fried dishes.


  • 1 kg (2 lb 4 oz) long red chillies
  • 150 g ( oz) sea salt


Rinse and dry the chillies, trim the stems and roughly chop. Mix the chopped chillies with three-quarters of the sea salt, then put the chilli and salt mixture into a glass jar, sprinkle with the rest of the sea salt and put on the lid.

Store the jar in a cool dark place for at least two weeks before using, and refrigerate after opening. These chillies will easily keep for a few months.
