This is hot-hot, a condiment for those who like a peppery vinegar to sprinkle onto cooked greens or to use like a bottled pepper sauce. The strength of the chili vinegar is controlled by the proportion of peppers to vinegar and the length of the steeping time. Be sure any friend to whom you give it as a gift has a boundless affection for palate-searing foods and sauces.
