2 tablespoons bacon fat
3 cups onion -- chopped fine
3/4 cup celery -- chopped fine
3 tablespoons minced garlic
3 quarts tomato sauce
2 cups dark brown sugar
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup Crystal hot sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon cayenne

Preparation / Directions:

Sauté the onions, celery, and garlic until the onions are soft and clear. Add the rest of the ingredients in any order you care to. I like to let this simmer for 4 or 5 hours. It has a nice, rich dark red color and works well as a finishing sauce. My wife likes me to a few cups off and add some liquid smoke to it so she can dip her potato chips in it or whatever else she can think of to put it on.
