I just love homemade dips, sauces and chutneys. They are usually pretty easy to make and ingredients list can be adjusted to suit your tastes.

I find that the flavour of the vinegar used affects the overall flavour quite drastically and like to test small amounts of different vinegars (and blends of) before I make the main batch.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
