Sweet Chilli Pineapple Sauce

Sweet chilli and pineapple sauce

Ever since I saw Nigella Lawson whizz some pineapple and plump red chillies in a processor on TV to make chilli jam, I’ve wanted to make something close. Hey, if you can have pineapple on your pizza, you can sure get through this one. I made this sauce with fresh pineapple (hate cutting it though) and fresh red chillies. And boy were those chillies hot. This sauce can be used in stir-frys, salads, sandwiches and more. It’s a tad chunky but quite delicious. The heat from the chillies and the sweetness from the pineapple work great together.
