Shimatogarashi---Island's Chili Pepper

This is a souvenir given by a friend. She traveled to Ishigaki-Island. A part of Okinawa Prefecture. It is made of Ishigaki chili pepper, awamori ( Okinawa Shochu---local distilled spirit made of Thai rice ) , salt and vinegar. I think I can use it as hot pepper sauce for anything.

Today I put a little over Tamago Gohan ( raw egg on white rice )
with soy sauce. Very hot ! It wakes me up. It also has mellow sweetness slightly. Worth to try.
