I STRESS! (((Boil gently for one minute.))) Is a must! Burns very easily! I wouldn`t even heat it just put it into a blender then toss into whatever you made (I made pasta and broccoli) will heat the sauce up enough. Very good! My DD couldn`t stop eating it!

I have tried SO many home made peanut sauces, only to be totally disappointed but this one delivers! While it's appearance isn't that of a Thai restaurant, it certainly is flavorful enough. I thought I would miss the traditional coconut milk aspect of the sauce but was pleasantly surprised, with my 'less than perfect' measurements I did feel at one point it was a tad too peanut buttery...I added a little extra vinegar and ginger and voila! perfect! I also went with other reviewers and simmered over a medium heat rather than boiling it. Absolutely delicious with fried tofu!

VERY NICE sauce - great texture and flavor. It wasn't quite spicy enough for us, so we added a blob of sriracha.
