Nam Jeem Guy Yang
Hot & Sweet Dipping Sauce
1/2 C cider or white vinegar
1/2 C sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. salt
1-1/2 tsp. chili pepper flakes or minced dried red chilies
Place vinegar in a small (non-reactive) saucepan and heat to a boil over high heat. Stir in sugar; lower heat to medium-low and simmer for five minutes. Using a mortar and pestle, pound or mash the garlic and salt to a fine paste. Stir in pepper flakes; mix well. Remove vinegar from heat and stir in garlic paste until dissolved. Let cool to room temperature; store in a sealed glass jar.
The sauce will keep in the refrigerator for several weeks, but is best used within five days.
Suggestions: Use as an accompaniment to grilled chicken, pork, lamb or fish, or with sticky rice. Can also be served with Poa Pee (Thai Egg Rolls).
