“Tangy and sweet, this sauce is a great compliment for grilled chicken or ribs. The longer you let it simmer, the spicier it will taste. The trick to this sauce is to start with the basic ingredients and then gradually add more of your favorite spice until you reach YOUR desired taste. I like it spicy but you might prefer it sweet. Be careful with the orange zest because it will overwhelm the other flavors if you use to much.”
