Sweet-Hot Garlic Sauce

I developed a minor addiction to Thai dipping sauce after being introduced to it by some Australian friends. Who knew it was so easy to make though?

One year ago: Spicy Red Cabbage with Apples and Carrots
Two years ago: Red Lentil, Tomato, and Coconut Soup
Three years ago: Penne with Potatoes and Arugula

Sweet-Hot Garlic Sauce (from Real Thai)

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup white vinegar
2 tbsp finely minced garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp chili-garlic sauce or coarsely ground dried red chili (or sambal oelek)

1. In a small heavy saucepan, combine sugar, water, vinegar, and salt. Bring to a rolling boil. Stir, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes until mixture thickens.
2. Remove from heat, stir in chili garlic sauce, and let cool to room temperature.
