Author Notes

I first tried this at a knife skills class at a Sur la Table store. The instructor had made it to enjoy instead of ketchup with our homemade French fries. It is bright and tart and has a fresher flavor than Lea & Perrins famous sauce.
This will keep, covered in the refrigerator, for 2-3 weeks.
I love it on steak or pork tenderloin. —ageekymom
