Schug, Herb & Garlic Spicy Sauce

When you have some 1 or more fresh or wrinkly jalapeños that you’re not sure what to do with, make this yemenite chimichurri. It would last for a month and you can use it during the week  on avocado or peanut butter toasts, roasted vegetables sandwiches and braised dishes. If you love that your mouth is on fire then chop the whole pepper (without the stem). If you prefer medium spicy then remove some of the placenta, Capsaicin Glands and seeds. For mild spicy, remove all the placenta, seeds and Capsaicin Glands and do it with gloves. The good thing about this recipe is that you don’t need a food processor.
