    Great all-purpose basting sauce that would be equally good as a marinade or even a salad dressing. I made half a batch last night and left it to 'cure' in the fridge. I used it tonight on some deluxe lamb cutlets. I spooned the sauce over the cutlets about 15 minutes before grilling them and let them sit. I wished I had put it on much earlier, so the flavours had a chance to build even more. So I recommend making an early start to the basting. My photos are before and after grilling. I had to cook inside tonight because we're having a heat wave and a complete fire ban, so no outdoor cooking. Thanks so much for posting.
