Vinegar Sauce

  • SERVINGS: makes about 6 cups
  • FAST
  1. 4 cups distilled white vinegar
  2. 1 1/3 cups water
  3. 2/3 cup ketchup
  4. 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  5. 1/4 cup salt
  6. 2 tablespoons crushed red pepper
  7. 1 tablespoon freshly ground pepper
  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a medium glass or ceramic bowl and whisk until the sugar and salt are thoroughly dissolved. Season to taste; the sauce should be piquant and flavorful.
Notes This isn't really the sort of sauce you lick off your fingers. It's designed to be a counterpoint to the richness and fattiness of pulled pork.
