B2 Sauce (a.k.a. Almost A1 Sauce)

Serves: 1 cup
Hands On Time: 
Total Time: 


1 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 cup water
1 cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup peeled garlic cloves, smashed
1 teaspoon celery seed
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


In a large saucepan, combine the Worcestershire, water, balsamic, raisins, ketchup, Dijon, orange juice, garlic and celery seed and place over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 30 to 40 minutes.

Remove from the heat and pour through a fine mesh strainer, pressing on the raisins and garlic to press as much of their soft pulp through the strainer as possible. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let cool and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
