"My reverse-engineered recipe for Heinz Chili Sauce."
1 (6 ounce) cans
quality tomato paste
light corn syrup
distilled white vinegar
minced onion flakes
unseasoned sweet chili powder
red chili pepper flakes
WHISK all ingredients well in a medium bowl: 1 (6 ounce) can quality tomato paste, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup light corn syrup (Karo), 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar (Heinz), 1 tablespoon minced onion flakes, 1 teaspoon unseasoned sweet chili powder, 1 teaspoon plain salt, 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice, 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves, 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/8 teaspoon red chili flakes, 1/8 teaspoon white pepper.
SIMMER sauce in a small saucepan over low heat until proper/desired consistency is reached (sauce should be as thick as possible, while retaining viscosity); TASTE sauce; SEASON to taste with a pinch of salt salt or more if necessary (flavor should be a balance between savory, salty, sweet and sour).
REMOVE from heat and allow to cool completely.
POUR sauce into a squeeze bottle and serve.
ENJOY it while it lasts! Refrigerate unused portion in sealed squeeze bottle.
