I never expected to see a recipe for Tiger Sauce when I queried it! This is quite close to the commercial brand and a WHOLE lot less expensive! Some ingredient comments: I used a 32 oz. jar of hot cherry peppers. When de-stemmed, it came quite close to the 12 oz by weight. Two ounces of pepper juice is 4 tablespoons. I also used one packet of Certo brand pectin - don't know the amount but it worked fine. The tamarind nectar came in 9 oz. cans and I used 3. Finally, this makes about 10 cups so be prepared!

I have a question. You used hot pickled cherry peppers instead of red cayenne peppers. These peppers don't really taste the same although they have that "pinchy sort of hot.Also the original also has mustard flour, anchovy,molasses, oregano cumin and garlic which are all savory.
