  1. Pack the dried chillies into sterilised kilner-type jars
  2. Cover with the malt vinegar
  3. Seal and store in a cool, dark place for 2 weeks or so.
  4. After 2 weeks the chillies will have softened. Tip the chillies and vinegar into a food processor and blend to a mash.
  5. Pour the mixture back into clean sterilised jars.
  6. It can be used immediately but seems to improve with age. I can't say how long it should keep, but I've never had any go bad on me and some are more than a year or so old.
