I love this condiment and am finding it VERY expensive in the store.

I never expected to see a recipe for Tiger Sauce when I queried it! This is quite close to the commercial brand and a WHOLE lot less expensive! Some ingredient comments: I used a 32 oz. jar of hot cherry peppers. When de-stemmed, it came quite close to the 12 oz by weight. Two ounces of pepper juice is 4 tablespoons. I also used one packet of Certo brand pectin - don't know the amount but it worked fine. The tamarind nectar came in 9 oz. cans and I used 3. Finally, this makes about 10 cups so be prepared!
