Entered for safe-keeping, when I want to cook authentic Portuguese recipes. It differs from Recipe #460610 in that water is not drained off and the seeds are retained to ensure the fire of the chili peppers. Malagueta peppers are longer (riper) than piri piri peppers; they are also known as hot red finger peppers. These peppers keep for at least 6 months, if refrigerated. Per Ana Patuleia Ortins in "Portuguese Homestyle Cooking", some versions of this recipe add a touch of lemon juice or vinegar and garlic, but this simple paste adds heat to a dish while allowing you to add lemon or garlic to your taste, depending on the dish. Use either 2 8-ounce jars or 4 4-ounce jars, sterilized for canning/preserving. When adding to a recipe, remember that this is high in salt, so taste the dish before adding any additional salt.
