Well, I tried this and though it isn't a bad recipe it is actually a starting point but aren't all recipes? I added spices and vegetables, i.e., garlic, onion, cayenne pepper, to punch this boring recipe up a bit. Thanks for the recipe though!!!!!

I'm sorry to say this, but this sauce is a conglomeration of ingredients which turn out to be a mess. I know that thought went into this recipe and I appreciate the effort.
