    Great, now I have a Dr. Pepper sauce to try AND a Grape Soda (Grape Nehi anyone?) sauce to make. 

    Oh and Bear, in this area if you buy the economy popcorn and/or soda you get unlimited refils so stop hogging it all!!!!!

    Ok now kids pay attention . You will need 5, 1 qt mason jars or some other containers to hold the sauce.

    You more than likely will only use 1 bottle of the soda.

    Empty the ketchup into the pan.

    [​IMG]

    Invert the bottles cuz you want all the ketchup.

    [​IMG]

    After you have all the ketchup, Fill the bottles with the soda and swoosh it around.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next pour all 3 bottles of the swooshed soda into the pan with the ketchup.

    [​IMG]

    Use a whisk to combine good. Turn the heat to medium. Whisk to keep from sticking.

    [​IMG]

    Next add the qt of vinegar........Keep whisking and heat on.

    [​IMG]

    Now you will need the dry ready to go.

    1, 4 oz can black pepper

    4 oz of garlic salt (not powder or granulated)

    1/2 cup sugar

    4 oz of your fav chili powder

    Combine all the dry into a bowl or measuring cup.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Keep whisking the pot.

    [​IMG]

    Then whisk in the dry to the pot. Whisk in very good so you dont have clumps.

    [​IMG]

    Bring the temp up so you have a mild rolling broil here. About 10-15 mins

    [​IMG]

    Next add the bottle of mustard. Whisk in good. The sauce will change color here. 

    [​IMG]

    Turn heat to high and bring to a broil and keep whisking and add the Tabasco. Iused the whole 2 oz bottle.

    [​IMG]

    Bring pot to a broil then turn heat down to simmer for 30 mins. Keep stirring so the sauce does not burn.

    I used to use the bottles after the sauce was off the heat but it seems these new fangle green bottles dont hold up to the heat. I save them for after.

    [​IMG]

    Spoon the sauce into the jars.

    [​IMG]

    Place lids and bands on the jars.

    [​IMG]

    The sauce will keep un refrigerated for however long it takes you to sop it up or give it away. If you feel you need to fridge it then go ahead.

    ENJOY

    I like the big print "no high fructose corn syrup".

    That is what I look for also.

    I was on my way down, but I had to stop for gas. By the time I got to your place the lights were out. I didn't want to disturb your sleep, so I turned around and drove home[​IMG]
