I was in a pinch and needed a quick home made S&S sauce and this really fit the "Bill". Quick, easy and perfectly apportioned ingredients. I added a few shakes of red pepper flakes b/c we really like a sauce with a kick. An added bonus is this freezes extremely well.
- 1⁄4 cup ketchup (or 1/4 cup other tomato based sauce)
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar (like honey) or 1⁄4 cup another sweetener (like honey)
- 1⁄4 cup vinegar (I use white but others use wine or apple)
- 1⁄4 cup fruit juice (I use pineapple but some people use cherry or orange or 1/8 cup apple and 1/8 cup orange)
