Parks Brand Hawaiian Chili Pepper Water

Parks Brand Hawaiian Chili Pepper Water

It is a long time since my visit to Kauai in the Hawaiian islands but I can still remember the local chilles.

Hawaiian Chili Pepper Water probably started as a Chile Paste mixed with brine for aid preservation. I have found lots of variations in the recipes some include Ginger (adding an Asian influence). The water is used as a condiment to add a kick to almost anything

In this recipe we have used Red Thai chilles, but in Hawaii they would use the local plump, wrinkly Hawaiian chilli peppers that can be found growing wild in some areas

Ingredients
8-10 Red Thai Chillies
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
2 Garlic cloves (finely sliced)
1 teaspoon Rock salt
1 tablespoon minced ginger (optional)
500 ml hot but not boiling water

Now depending on what you think is the most genuine style of Hawaiian Chili Pepper Water you can use a blender to process all the ingredients or just let it all infuse in a jar, I would put some cuts into the chillies to allow in the brine if you are using the soaking method. Remember to refrigerate this sauce if you intend to keep it.

There is even a commercial version from Parks Brand that seems to be impossible to locate here in England, so if anyone is going to Hawaii, please bring me back a bottle?
