"Much cheaper and less expensive that those little bottles at the store. Plan ahead this must be made at least 1 day ahead to allow the flavors to blend and intensify, more time up to 5 days in the fridge is even better, do not use this the same day it's made, also this needs about 1 1/2 hours simmering time on top of the stove. This goes with my #recipe24884"
