(by Monica Bouvier)
2 bottles (20 oz. each) Heinz 57 Sauce
2 bottles (20 oz. each) French dressing
10 - 14 oz. French's yellow mustard
6 bay leaves
1 t. white vinegar
1 T. hot sauce, or to taste
optional: 1 c. honey or brown sugar
(and don't forget the special ingredient: LOVE)
Put Heinz 57 Sauce, French dressing, and bay leaves in a pot.
Pour the vinegar into one of the empty bottles and then add to the pot.
Place pot over over medium heat, and add the hot sauce gradually.
(The heat from the pot can disguise how weak or strong it is.)
Once the sauce starts to boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer for several hours, periodically stirring and tasting.
Toward the end of cooking, add optional honey or brown sugar if you like a sweeter sauce.
Sauce should be used to mop BBQ meat, and leftovers can be frozen.
