Use this all-purpose sauce to baste, mix into, and serve with any form of chopped, shredded, or pulled barbecued pork. It’s the style of sauce you’re likely to find at a typical North Carolina pig pickin’. In a tightly sealed jar, the sauce keeps up to 2 months in the refrigerator.
In a stainless-steel or enameled saucepan, combine all the ingredients over low heat and simmer, stirring. Cook, stirring, for about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool.
