Sriracha Powder

IMG_20150325_115155_editSriracha is currently the number one condiment in the world, but bringing a bottle of sauce into the back country can be problematic. There is no denying a little hit of “Thai Ketchup” can jack up any meal, but wearing it because a bottle leaked all over your pack…no thanks.

Kitchen Cook Time and Prep: This recipe makes enough powder to season a years worth of back country meals. It takes about 60 minutes to prepare.

Tools: You will need a medium saucepan or stock pot to cook with and a blender or food processor to puree. In the back country all you will need is a spice bottle with a seasoning lid and a meal that needs a kick in the…

Back Country-What to Expect: Mildly spicy with a great hit of garlic. Works awesome as a dry rub for fish if you happen to catch any.

NOTE: you can use red jalapenos in substitute of the serrano peppers. Most commercially made sauces use them. I’ve also been told that 1 tbsp. fish sauce can be used in place of the lime juice and worcestershire sauce.

Back country preparation is super easy. First allow the Sriracha to cool down to almost room temperature. Once cool, pour 1 cup of mixture onto the drying sheet lined dehydrator tray. Use the vegetable setting (125 degrees) for this sauce and allow to dry for 10-12 hours, overnight usually will do it.

Once completely dry break into to small pieces and grind into a rough powder using your blender or food processor.

Store in light spice bottles with seasoning lids.
