This sauce is served with every meal in Tunisia, North Africa.  It is an excellent condiment for those who like their food fiery hot. A little, or a lot, of this hot sauce can be added to the entrées which follow to fire up the degree of ‘heat’ as one so desires.

  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 Tbsp ground caraway
