This sauce rocks! I blend it up and put it in a squeeze bottle. It is now a staple in my fridge. I put it on lots of things, tonight it is going to be mixed with a little sour cream and used as a pizza sauce for my pulled pork (Recipe #426274) pizza. It improves with age, after a couple of weeks in the fridge it mellows as the vinegar punch diminishes and the flavors combine. a+ ******
