Notes

  • This makes a lot of sauce it will keep about 10 days in the refrigerator arid freezes well
  • The spices are all approximate, as I do not measure them when I make this sauce so feel free to alter amounts as your tastes indicate The longer it simmers the better it will be and it'll taste better tomorrow.
