It’s hard to meet a kitchen failure that can’t be cured with some decent hot sauce. And dousing kitchen failures in hot sauce is probably how I got through the first couple of years of my gluten-free life, and college.

That said, after you get your cooking chops, you start to grow disappointed with the old hot sauces on the shelf. You want something fresh and just the way you like it. Especially when that dish you are cooking is supposed to be spicy.

Enter: The Purposeful Hot Sauce

This isn’t the cover-up hot sauce here. Rather, this is the main-stage, headliner hot sauce. Plus, it has ginger and turmeric, so it’s basically a superfood.

The raw honey gives a sweetness and maintains its benefits in the finished dish since we never cook this sauce. I love incorporating honey because it can reduce allergies and inflammation. Also, it helps this recipe steer clear of refined sugar.

I used dried chilis because that is what I tend to have on hand. However, you can use fresh chilis as well. If you are using fresh, just skip the soaking. You only need to soak the dried chilis so that they will puree nicely.

Choosing your Heat

The heat level as described in the recipe works nicely for this Colorado native. It’s got a kick, but it definitely doesn’t create too much heat. The vinegar and honey nicely balance the spice.

If this is too hot for you (looking at your Wisco and Michigan friends) then add a little extra vinegar and honey to calm the heat. I recommend mixing it as suggested and tasting it before making any additions.

If it isn’t hot enough, use the chili soaking water instead of fresh water, add additional chilies, or soak the chilies with their seeds if you’re brave!

How to use this Ginger Turmeric Honey Chili Sauce

This is calling for a stir-fry. It would go nicely with a summer vegetable medley of zucchini, yellow squash, and asparagus.

It also pairs excellently with winter vegetables like brussels sprouts, carrots, and butternut squash.

Making the Ginger Turmeric Honey Chili Sauce

First, you will need to reconstitute the red chilies by soaking them in water for 20-30 minutes or overnight. I usually use a mason jar for this. Make sure to crack open the chilies and remove the stems and seeds before soaking to keep the heat to a manageable level. If you love spice, then feel free to keep them in, but that’s too hot for me and the Eat Your Way Clean household.

Peel the ginger and turmeric, saute the onions, and then throw all of the ingredients into the blender. I use a Magic Bullet because it has proven to be the best blender for liquidy concoctions of small volume.

For a spicier mix, use water that was soaking in chilies instead of fresh water. That water is to make a thinner consistency, but it can also serve to change the spice level.

To make a vegan version, use agave and tamari instead of honey and fish sauce.
