I did not have pectin on hand when making this so, I used jelly instead but, it was perfect to go along side the Jalapeno Popper Wonton Puffs recipe I had made!
I was so sad when Arby's stopped offering the poppers with this dip... and so excited when I found it on here! This is it, it tastes exactly like it's supposed to!
I always wondered if there were any berries in this sauce! Now I know the answer and plus I can make this sauce at home! I had all the ingredients on hand (even the pectin) and it only took about 25 drops of red food coloring for my sauce to turn a pretty shade of red. I did cut the sauce in half since I knew I wouldn't need quite that much sauce and plus I wanted to see how it tasted. It is a wonderful dip with Jalapeño Bites... sweet with just a little tang from the vinegar ( I used organic apple cider vinegar) It wasn't very hot at all since the sauce cooks down for a while, even though I used fresh jalapeno instead of canned. A great copycat that tastes just like the original... thanks for posting!
This recipe was created by Todd Wilbur for his book "Even More Top Secret Recipes" (Penguin/Putnam 2002)
When I first came across this recipe I thought it was also known as the Arby's Red Ranch Sauce used in their Beef and Cheddar Melt. Not sure now. Ok now for the Mind Games. If you mess up like I did and buy the wrong food coloring, your mind will have a hard time accepting this as the real deal...Mine came out purble and I had a real hard time putting this on my Roast Beef Sandwiches.
