I got this sauce after watching a niece make it for three years for our family reunion. I helped her make it each time but she was reluctant to give me the recipe. So, I kinda 'borrowed' it when she wasn't looking!

1Mix all ingredients into a large stock pot. Heat until boiling. Use to baste onto BBQ while cooking. Can also be used to add to BBQ sandwiches and plates.
2This could be canned using a water bath canner. I have never had enough left over to can, but I am sure it could be done by processing it as long as you would tomato sauce.
