Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I always double this recipe. It seems like a lot of spices, but have faith. This is the best sauce ever. I always feel like I should be playing the theme from "The Godfather" as I stir this sauce. Be careful, it really pops a lot while cooking. Use a lid on the pot but cock it so there is some space between the lid and the pot.
