The recipe is actually very easy but it definitely requires your undivided attention.  You don’t want to get distracted or leave the stove when making this, not even to get your camera to take picture along the way.  It goes from perfect to burnt in the blink of an eye.  Believe me, I know all too well.

A jar of this sauce should win anyone over, trust me.

    I was lucky enough to get a jar of this last year. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Note: It doesn’t even need a co-star. It’s amazing on it’s own, eaten with just a spoon. 🙂
