Bring a fiery taste of Summer Solstice back home with you!
Each year, 3HO International holds its Summer Solstice Celebration in Espanola, New Mexico. It is a chance for people to purify their minds, souls, and bodies through Kundalini Yoga and three days of White Tantric Yoga, eating very cleansing food, drinking the purest water, and breathing clean air. As part of the healing diet, this special hot sauce, made with native New Mexican chilies, is always served.
Solstice Hot Sauce
- 3 large onions, chopped
- 1/4 cup dry crushed red chilies
- 8 oz. tamarind concentrate
- 16 oz. hot water
- 1 1/2 cup sesame oil
- 1 Tbsp. turmeric
- 10 whole small dry red chilies
- 2 cups apple cider vinegar
How to make:
Put onions in a large bowl. Sprinkle with crushed chilies. Melt tamarind concentrate in hot water. Add oil and diluted tamarind to onions. Sprinkle with turmeric. Add whole chilies and vinegar. Stir and cover. Let sit overnight or several days for the fullest flavor. Store in refrigerator. It will keep a long time, and get better and better!
