Makes:2 1/3 cups
This simple sauce is fabulous on everything from chicken to sandwiches.
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
3 medium garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 cup water
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring until ingredients are completely incorporated. Reduce heat to low and gently simmer until flavors have melded and sauce has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 30 to 40 minutes.
Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. If not using right away, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
