  • 1/2 cup (120 mL) ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) prepared mustard
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) salt
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) cayenne

How to Make It

1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer while stirring until the sugar dissolves.
