Wild Sauce

Our local HEB ran pork butt for $1.00 per pound the other day and I bought several for grinding up to mix with venison to make some summer sausage. While grinding the pork butts I cut enough lean strips from one of the butts to make pork bits and rice for our evening meal.  While trying to come up with a sauce to glaze the pork in I made a spicy sweet and tangy red sauce that was one of those accidents that turned out so good I had to write it down and remember how to make it.  Everyone that has tasted the sauce so far has asked how to make it so here is the recipe.  Hope you enjoy it, Wild Ed

Wild Sauce

1 cup ketchup

1 cup cider vinegar

½ cup brown sugar

½ cup sugar

2 tablespoons paprika

1 teaspoon cayenne

1 tablespoon black pepper

1 tablespoon dried chipotle pepper flakes

2 tablespoon dried red pepper flakes

2 cups water

Mix all ingredients well and bottle.

We have been making Wild Sauce, BBQ Sauce and Chutneys to hand out as small Christmas gifts to friends and family this year.  We are going to get together with both sides of the family and our kids and their families this year and be able to enjoy them all.  I hope each of you have a Merry Christmas and get to spend time with those you love.  God bless each of you in this new year and God bless Texas, Wild Ed
