Hawaii Chili Pepper Water
Very Expensive on the web. Easy to make your own. I have read Thai peppers work. Old habits, I still use the hard to find Hawaii Chili Peppers. Hawaii Chili Pepper Water is basically water and vinegar infused with very hot Hawaii Chili Peppers (Thai Peppers are hot enough). It is very hot if you haven’t tried it before be careful. My first experience, was it is just water, nobody could eat my food that night. In Hawaii, it is a staple, you see it at restaurants or you buy it at the supermarket for $3. It is not a hot sauce but a condiment that adds a little heat to any dish. Try it on fish, chicken, eggs, or as a dipping sauce for steak or pork. Some recipes also suggest the addition of Shoyu (Soy Sauce). Which is also delicious. This recipe says ginger is optional, my opinion is for the correct flavor, you need ginger. Buy the Ginger Root not powdered ginger. You only need 4 peppers, they are very hot. Since the good stuff in Hawaii, is in a plastic bottle, a little hard to ship. I was able to order online, cost me $13 and $16 to ship water. I have seen some brands in glass bottles. I don’t know about their flavor, they are not sold in Hawaii.
