Instructions:

Prepare the Dried Fruits:

  • For the purpose of softening whole dried apricots or plums, immerse them in warm water for approximately half an hour after they have been dried.
  • The soaking water should be drained and thrown away.

Make the Chamoy Base:

  • The dried fruits (apricots and/or plums) that have been soaked should be combined in a saucepan with water, granulated sugar, apple cider vinegar, chili powder, salt, cayenne pepper (if using), and ground tamarind (if using).
  • For the purpose of dissolving the sugar and ensuring that the components are equally distributed, bring the liquid to a boil over medium heat while stirring it occasionally.

Simmer and Blend:

  • While the mixture is simmering, reduce the heat to a low setting and let it cook for around ten to fifteen minutes, or until the dried fruits have become tender and the flavors have merged together.
  • You should take the pot off the heat and allow the mixture to cool down a little bit.

Blend into a Smooth Sauce:

  • Place the mixture that has been allowed to cool into a blender or food processor. Bear in mind that the combination will be extremely hot.
  • In a blender, process the ingredients until they reach a consistency similar to a thick sauce.
  • In the event that the chamoy is excessively thick, you may add a few ice cubes to the mixture while it is being blended in order to assist in achieving the correct consistency.

Adjust Seasonings:

  • The chamoy should be tasted, and the seasoning should be adjusted to your preference.
  • For a more intense level of heat, you can add more chili powder; for sweetness, you can add more sugar; and for tanginess, you can add more apple cider vinegar.

Strain (Optional):

  • You can remove any pulp or solids from the blended mixture by straining it through a sieve or a strainer with fine mesh. This will result in a chamoy sauce that is smoother.
  • Your selection for texture will determine whether or not you need to complete this step.

Cool and Store:

  • Before transferring the chamoy sauce to a clean glass jar or container for storing, it is important to wait until it has completely cooled down.
  • If you want to keep the chamoy for a few weeks, you can store it in the refrigerator. After some time has passed, the flavors will continue to evolve.
