This was a pretty good sauce. However, the (rice) vinegar flavor is still a bit too strong for my tastes. I pureed the tomatoes, chili peppers, and scallions before cooking, and then simmered for an hour. Thanks for the recipe!

Great spicey sweet-doesn't take my head off - sauce. After simmering it for just over an hour on low heat I pureed it until it was smooth , almost shiny and then added 1 drop of red food dye. The result was a beautiful sauce that I served with Spicy Jalapeno crab cakes. Thanks Troy ,easy recipe, just the right amount but it was over 1 cup.
