You can also make red yuzu pepper paste if you swap the green yuzu for yellow yuzu, and use red chili instead.
Rinse the yuzu and pat dry. Remove any damaged parts with a knife.
Grate the green rind. Try to leave the white pith on the fruit, because it's bitter.
Rinse the green chili peppers throughly and pat dry. Remove stem and blend in a food processor or blender. Add in the seeds for extra spice.
Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together.
Chill in the fridge for a week to 10 days to improve the taste, and it's done! The seeds will absorb the green color. If you freeze them, they'll last for a year.
Bottle them up to give away. Sterilize the container in boiling water.
Pack them into small bottles. They really make nice gifts!
Story Behind this Recipe
My family loves yuzu pepper! I wanted to make my own that's really hot because store-bought yuzu pepper isn't spicy enough.
Try to grate the skin, and leave the white pith on. I tend to include seeds of the hot chili pepper, but if you don't like spicy food try to remove them. Make sure to use gloves and goggles, or you won't be able to wash your face or put on contact lenses that whole day.
