Hoisin
« on: September 19, 2016, 05:27:05 am »
We had been making homemade lettuce wraps and one of the ingredients in my wife's recipe was hoisin and when we ran out I went to the interwebs and in a pinch made my hoisin. She likes it better than the jar stuff so I guess from now on we will make it from scratch. Should make about 1/3 cup.

4 TBSP Soy Sauce
2 TBSP Peanut Butter
1 TBSP Honey (or Molasses)
2 Tsp Rice Wine Vinegar
2 Tsp Sesame Oil
1 Tsp Sriracha Hot Sauce
1/8 Tsp Black Pepper
1 Clove Minced Garlic

It looks tasty and I bet the store bought has a lot of corn syrup in it.

The first time I made it I misread the rice wine vinegar to be TBSP instead of Tsp and it was quite thin, but very tasty. It also stores like a champ.

Homemade stuff is always so much better.  I just made a simple marinara sauce from some tomatoes that were starting to go bad, never done that before, and it was the best dang marinara I ever had.  Sure beats Ragu and Prego.

That sounds super tasty! We have been making homemade eggrolls lately, and jeez they are tasty! We will have to make some of this to go along.
