Great recipe, what a lifesaver. I do have one warning. Keep an eye on this wonderful concoction, I let mine bubble for a few hours at a lower temperature to bring out the flavor and when I came back to taste it, IT WAS GONE! I knew right there I had a winner, and a thief in my family... Silly kids :-)

I modified this slightly to make a reduced sauce that goes great on everything.

My kids are very picky eaters and they asked for 3rds! Great recipe. (I cooled mine down for 10 minutes before I served it, it was a hit!)

Recipe was unclear; I attempted to remove the water from the pot with my hands, but was only successful in burning my hands. Also, I spilled all of my delicious water on the floor. Please make a clearer recipe next time.
