Recipe of Last Week: Pimon (hot pepper)

Pimon is the best spice ever; I am addicted. Recipes for pimon sauce vary from kitchen to kitchen, but this one (from Miranda, Estelle's neighbor) is particularly flavorful. Modify and multiply as you wish...

Ingredients: 3 chillies (pimon, or other small hot pepper); 5 plum tomatoes; 1/2 onion; 1/2 head garlic; a little grated ginger; sugar and salt; 1 or 2 Maggi tomate cubes

1) mix chopped chillies, tomatoes, onion, garlic, and ginger
2) blend it all in a processor
3) fry the mixture in a pan with oil
4) add sugar, salt, and crumbled Maggi cubes to taste, during frying
5) let cool, can store in fridge and serve in a bowl for self-serve at the table

The taste is sweet and fruity, with a delicious spicy kick at the end.
