DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all ingredients. Cover and refrigerate in glass or plastic container.
  • Refrigerate no longer than 7 days.
  • Note: you will know when the sauce is starting to go bad on you. Put your ear to the opened container, if it's going bad it will "talk to you", you'll hear something like Rice Krispies snapping and popping. Weird as it sounds, it's true!
