Steps to Make It

Method to Making a Marinade or Baste

  1. Warm honey in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds.

  2. Add the honey to a medium bowl and combine with remaining ingredients.

  3. Use immediately as a marinade or baste.

Method to Making a Sauce

  1. If you are interested in making a sauce, add all ingredients to a saucepan and simmer over medium-low heat for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring often. 

  2. Once the mixture has reduced a bit and it coats the back of a spoon, remove from heat and let cool for 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Drizzle on top of cooked vegetables and meat or serve on the side.
