Omg yum! I've tried so many different ways to make a red chili sauce but it never seems to look right so I'm definitely gonna have to give this a try. I can only imagine the flavor that the beef/pork broth brings to the chili pods and although I'm sure I'll want to use it all up right away I was wondering...can this be made up and stored in a jar or even frozen for later use and if not how long will it keep in the refrigerator?
