Step 1: Combine the ingredients in a heavy saucepan and gradually bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat slightly to obtain a gentle simmer. Simmer the sauce until reduced by a quarter—6 to 8 minutes.
Step 2: Transfer the sauce to clean jars and let cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until serving. The sauce will keep for several months.
How to use: Pretty much as you would any sauce, noting the strong affinity this sauce has for chicken, ribs, and pork.
