Ingredient Checklist

Directions

  • Remove from heat and pour sauce into a bowl. Cover and refrigerate, 8 hours to overnight.

Cook's Note:

Adjust spices and sugar to taste. I like mine spicy, so I usually add a bit more cinnamon. Add orange zest, if desired. Sweeten with 1 teaspoon of honey if you'd like it less tart.

12.21.20 There’s a lot of personal taste involved between the sugar and the spices, and for us, it was just too sweet. I cut sugar back to 2/3 cup, but in the future, will try 1/2 cup (maybe even 1/3), but that's something easy to adapt. There’s a subtle orange juice flavor in the background, and the spices are good partners. Nice recipe, would make again. Read More
