The tropical touch

What do you need:

  • 4 tangerines

  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • Hot sauce, to taste

Peel the oranges and tangerines, remove the seeds and cut them into pieces. Pour the apple cider vinegar into a blender and add the fruits. Blend until mixture is smooth. Continue beating until the mixture is liquefied. Add ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic salt, ginger, lemon pepper, and hot sauce and continue to pulse slowly until mixture is smooth.

Pour the sauce into a skillet and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Puree until mixture is smooth. When ready, transfer the contents into the same saucepan and bring to a slow boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until desired consistency, about 30 to 40 minutes. Stir occasionally while cooking.
