This was delicious! I cut the sugar in half and only used half of the spices. I also put the mixture in the food processor when it was done cooking to make more of a sauce type texture. It was fantastic and had just the right amount of heat and flavor. I will keep this and make it again. :)

My grandmother makes a similar sauce. Except hers has green peppers and cloves, no pickled peppers, less vinegar (apple cider,) and I swear it goes on EVERYTHING! Especially good with ham with a side of horseradish.It is very sweet though.

Nice and quick! Used it for a hotdog I was making. Thanks, grandmother Merril and Jellyqueen for posting her recipe.
