Recipe by Geema

I have not made this sauce yet, but just reading it got my heart beating fast. Seems like it would go well with game, poultry or pork.

I loosely used the cooking instructions, but followed the ingredients! I boiled for longer and added more liquid while cooking. I mashed with a potato masher. I tried to screen it, but frankly it was just too thick! Next time I'm making much more and will put into jam jars and process.
