Level: Easy | Prep/Cook Time: 20-30 mins


  • 1 C Apple Cider Vinegar (Heinz)
  • 1/2 C Clear Corn Syrup
  • 1/2 C Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Coarse Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 TBL Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Ketchup (Heinz)
  • 1/4 Tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes (McCormick, Fiesta)
  • 1/3 C Crushed Or Tomato Purée (Hunts)
  • 1 Thin Sliced Jalapeño


  1. This makes enough for one cook if using as a mop sauce, so I make 2 jars at a time. One for the table the other to mop, if I am doing Carolina style meat.
  2. Mix all ingredients and heat on low for a few minutes till flavors meld together; usually about 15 minutes.
