I'll do that later, Kayelle, when I go upstairs to my PC. I'll also put it on the international forum, for anybody looking for Thai foods. I'll also change some of the wording - as usual, when I looked at it later, there were some dings, and you can't edit after 20 min, or something like that!

1/2 c white vinegar
3/4 tsp salt
2 tb garlic, minced, but not too fine
About 10 dried Thai pepper, to make 1 tb,
or 1 tb crushed red pepper flakes

A. Crush the peppers in a mortar, until some powder is present, and no large pieces are left. If using crushed red pepper flakes, crush them briefly, in the mortar, to get some powder, but mostly flakes. I no mortar, use a spice grinder, pulsing to get this texture.

B. In a small (I use a 1 1/2 qt) saucepan, combine all ingredients, and bring to a boil over med-high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Reduce heat to a simmer, and cook about 20 min., until thickened to a light syrup. A foam will form on the surface - about a half inch foam is what seems to indicate the right thickness.

C. Cool to room temperature before using. Keeps very well in the fridge - cool again, before using, as it is very thick, when cold.

This is very good with grilled chicken and meats, as well as fried appetizers.
Thank you.

This sounds very similar to sweet Thai chile sauce. Is it a version of it, or something else?

We've been using sweet Thai chile sauce as a dipping sauce for egg rolls. Similar to duck sauce, but we like the heat.

I've seen similar recipes with this name, GG, but they had pastes in them, as the source for the hot and garlic, whichwweren't as good, IMO. Depends on the author, I guess.

That got me curious, so I had to check out a bunch of my Thai CBs (I didn't check all of them, and don't ask how many I have! lol), just to see what they called similar sauces. The only one that had the actual name Thai Sweet Chile Sauce was a recipe which had tamarind for the sour ingredient, and fresh chiles, so that's probably not what you have been using - it's probably closer to this one. And two had the names Nahm Jeem, but different "last names"! Like I said, it depends on the author, or their source for the recipe.

I am putting the recipe in the condiment and International forums now.
