Where am I?

I've been working a simple web service to help maximize self-consumption of solar power, with the help of Emporia Energy's VUE Utility Connect. Today seems like a good day to release it: I hope it's useful!

Sambal Olek

April 21, 2023 at 12:34 PM | categories: food, recipes | View Comments

Remember the Great Huy Fong Shortage of 2022-23? Here's my homemade version of Sambal Olek:

  • 8-oz fresh red chilis, Thai or Vietnamese long type
  • 6-T (3-oz) rice vinegar
  • 1-T salt
  • 12-oz glass jar

Remove the stems from the chilis and rinse them, then transfer to a blender or food processor. Add the vinegar and salt. Blend smooth, adding 1-3 T water if needed. Transfer to a small pan and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Finally, transfer to the glass jar.

Keep refrigerated.
