We’ve captured summer in a spice paste! Here’s an all-around condiment that brings you this season’s ripe sweetness and a mild heat that gives your dishes a hit of flavor easily. Made with juicy pineapples, a combination of native chilies, and curry leaves then cooked down until it is thick and concentrated, this is an easygoing sweet and savory sambal that gives a bit of kick and can be slathered on or stir-fried with your vegetables. You can even use it instead of jam on your pancakes or bread.
Storage: Keep refrigerated. A layer of oil on the surface keeps it longer and solidifies when refrigerated. Just set it over the counter for a few minutes before using.
