Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 5 min
8 oz water
2oz white vinegar
1 tbsp Hawaiian rock salt, sea salt, or kosher salt
Hawaiian chili peppers, sliced (add as many as you can fit. You can also substitute in other spicy chili peppers like scotch bonnets or Asian chilies)
2 cloves garlic, sliced
2-3 fresh ginger slices
Put peppers, garlic, and ginger in a food processor or chopper. If using a food processor, stop before it becomes a paste. You want to have large chunks.
Combine the mixture with salt, water, and vinegar in a large pot. Cover with a lid, bring to a boil over medium heat, then remove from the heat.
When the mixture is cooled, pour it into a glass jar. Give it a few good shakes to incorporate. Store the fridge for 2-3 days before using it. Enjoy!
