Recipe by annie chambers

This came from an old 1940's recipe book. I love the taste of the sauce. It is very predictable.

Delicious sauce easy to make only takes minutes to prepare, I served it with garlic pork-bite size pieces. To night I will serve it with stir fried beef over noodles. I am going to try to freeze a small jar and see if that will work Thanks annie chambers for a very tasty recipe
