    Tips

    The sauce can be made up to 2 days before using.

    Cover and refrigerate. If a smoother sauce is needed, allow sauce to cool and blend with a stick blender until smooth.

    This sauce can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

    Make a large batch and freeze for later use.
