Every cuisine has its hot sauce recipe favorite: Salsa, Harissa, Charif, Schug, Chutney, Hot Pepper Jelly, to name just a few. All delicious and all worth making.
Schug is the Yemenite Favorite, all-green, pungent and pleasantly acrid, thanks to the inclusion of Fenugreek, a staple in Yemenite Cooking, called Halbah in Arabic.
Yemenite Schug Recipe:
6 jalapeno peppers
1 large bunch cilantro, stems cut off
1/4 cup ground fenugreek
2 teaspoon ground dry coriander
6 large cloves garlic
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Process all ingredients in a food processor, until fine but not completely smooth. You want some texture. Store refrigerated in a glass jar.
