Cook's Notes

Refrigerate in an airtight container, up to 1 week. Bring to room temperature before serving. The spices in this tangy sauce also go well with ham. Make a double batch and freeze half for Christmas.

I have been making this for years--only difference is I am a bit heavier handed on my spices and I leave a couple of whole cinnamon sticks in while it rests in the fridge. I usually make is a week before Christmas and remove cinnamon before serving. Serve, warm, cold, or, the easiest, room temperature ! This is tasty to have around or make for any time--not just Christmas. Henny H.

Closest in flavor to the stuff in a can but bland.
