Hello World! It's me, Shelly!
For my first ever blog post, I wanted to write about one of my loves: hot sauce. If you know me IRL (in real life) then you would know how much I LOVE hot sauce. I seriously eat it with anything and everything! When I circumnavigated the world on Semester at Sea, I actually collected hot sauce from each country I visited. But more about that later. Onto my FIRST attempt at making my very own hot sauce.
After eating jars and jars of pre-made hot sauce, I finally decided to take the plunge and make my own. Mainly because I bought a big bunch of lemongrass from the grocery store and am currently trying to finish using it. For those who think it might be a difficult task to make your own hot sauce, I can tell you now that it is NOT at all. The only problem might be that your house/apartment may smell very "asian" (as my friend described it) for a day. This is an adapted recipe from Wandering Chopsticks, my favorite asian food blog.
