OK, this time I am going to offer you a crazy recipe I use that my family calls my “Bumper” Sauce. Weird I know, but they claim it would taste good on a “57 Bumper” and that is the reason for the name. Ha-ha.
To be honest it is part of a recipe I found several years ago, I am not even sure where I got it, but I tweaked it several times, as we all will and this is what I came up with.  I hope you like it, as I have several recipes I intend to offer in a few weeks (or Days, depending on time) that call for this sauce during the making.
Its spicy little thing created in my Ozark Kitchen…..
The Bumper Sauce
8 Cups Sugar
2 Cups White Grapefruit Juice
1 Cup Orange Juice
1 Cup Soy Sauce
4 Cloves Garlic-Minced
1 Tbs. Black Pepper
½ Can of Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce
2 Medium Onions Chopped
First, combine Peppers, Garlic, Soy Sauce, Onions and blend till almost liquid, add to LARGE stock pot.
Add sugar and Juices to pot, cook slowly over medium-low heat, stirring often.  Mixture may foam up after coming to a boil but that is okay.  Continue to cook until sauce reduces by about 1/3 to ½ depending on how thick you personally want it.  Store in Jars in the refrigerator to use as a glaze for chicken, beef or pork. Many of my friends claim they add more soy sauce, I believe it is a personal choice and completely up to you. Can be served over Chicken Wings and Cocktail Sausages as well as meatballs as well.

About Me
I have been cooking since i was 12 years old, got my first job in a restaurant when I was 14. I was trained by a professional Cook, also my Mother and Grandmother who had deep roots in the country style as well as the Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking.
My favorite things to cook
All though I can cook almost anything, my favorite thing to cook is breads. I have making homemade breads, rolls and baked goods since I was 18 and I am now 50!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Almost all of my Family Recipes center around Country Cooking, with a Dutch flare, or style. My family all comes from the deep country where you cooked what you raised.
My cooking triumphs
I once prepared and served a Banquet for President Bill Clinton when he was Governor of Arkansas. Multiple Blue Ribbons at the Arkansas State Fair as well as the Arkansas-Oklahoma State Fair.
My cooking tragedies
Once cooked a Standing Rib Roast that was so tough you needed a Skill Saw to slice it and it was already on the table.
