I make a batch of this every year. It is sooo delicious I could top ice cream with it! REALLY! I'm talking about "my" Louisiana Bar-B-Que sauce. I have written about this before, but you MUST try it - at least once in your life. There are ELEVEN ingredients in it. There is a story behind it as well.
LOUISIANA BAR-B-Que SAUCE
1/2 Cup (1 stick) BUTTER
4 whole garlic cloves, peeled
1 1/2 Cups dark brown sugar (packed)
2 tsp. celery seed
2/3 Cups lemon juice (from real lemons)
3 Tblsp. apple cider vinegar
1/3 Cup French’s (or other good quality) horseradish mustard
1/3 Cup Worcestershire sauce
2—4 tsp. Tabasco sauce (I only add 1 - we don't like hot)
1-14 oz. bottle Heinz catsup
1/3 Cup Heinz chili sauce
In heavy pot, melt butter, add garlic cloves & brown lightly.
Add all of the rest and simmer at least 45 minutes. (I simmer very low for about an hour.)
• Pour into qt. jar and age in refrigerator at least a week before using.
Will last several months.

Let me know what YOU think after trying it, OK?
It is especially delicious on chicken and ribs, topped on meatloaf, and can be used as a hot dip for anything. I have even marinated chicken tenders in it and then baked them in the oven. Personally we like to dip finger foods and then fingers!
The key to making this is to use a very heavy pot. • Then it can be funneled into several small jars when hot and saved in the refrigerator. This is what I do.
