1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 onion, peeled and chopped – about 1 cup
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
2 tablespoons dark molasses
3 fresh hot chili peppers, such as jalapeno, or hotter if desired, seeded (about 2 ounces or 4 to 5 tablespoons)
2 tablespoons Dijon
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons ground cumin seed
2 tablespoons ancho chili powder

Directions:  Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.  Cool, then puree in a blender or food processor until smooth and strain.  Sauce can be stored in the refrigerator in a covered container.
