You need to make the Peri Peri Sauce and allow it to cool down to room temperature and then store it in an air-tight dry and clean jar.
You can refrigerate this for up to a year or even longer. It truly depends on how well you are storing this. The lower the acidity of the sauce, the longer it is going to stay.
I have added a lot of oil while making the recipe and oil acts as a natural preservative.
You can also, soak the Bird's Eye Chilis in Vinegar and then blend into the sauce. Chilis which are fermented in vinegar will stay fresh for longer.
