This recipe is a great table sauce for Pulled Pork. Blending both the vinegar and tomato traditions of North Carolina into one.
  • 1 1/2 cups cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne or hot red pepper flakes

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir to dissolve the sugar. Serve at room temperature or chilled. The sauce keeps indefinitely

Blaspheme sir! An eastern Tarheel would scoff at the very mention of that bloody fruit of the Devil himself entering the sanctity of a purist's vinegar sauce for his beloved "chopped" pork, as it's done in the east. It would equal drinking unsweetened tea or using whole wheat buns.......Good Lord, I'm feeling faint.
