  1. Cut all the chillies in half lengthways and scrape out the seeds (keep some seeds aside for aesthetic reasons if you wish).

  2. Place the chillies in a food processor together with the garlic and 1 cup of the white vinegar.

  3. Process until well combined but not pureed.

  4. Pour the chilli mixture into a large heavy based saucepan together with the remaining vinegar and caster sugar.

  5. Cook for a few minutes stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved.

  6. Place a lid on the saucepan and simmer for 30 - 40 minutes or until the mixture reduces and thickens.

  7. Give it a good stir every few minutes to stop the mixture burning on the bottom.

  8. If you like, add a few of the chili seeds to the mixture so it looks pretty.

  9. Pour into sterilized jars or bottles.
