Time preparation: 5′ 
Cook time: 20′ 
Total time: 25′ 


1/2 cup water
1/2 cup Fino balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup. dijon mustard
1/4 cup raisins
½ teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Pinch cayenne pepper
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1 large yellow onion, cut into chunks
1 small navel orange, cut in half


In a saucepan, combine all ingredients except for the orange
Squeeze the juice from the orange into the saucepan and then add in the juiced orange segments
Bring to a boil, lower light to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes At 5 minutes, remove orange segments and discard
Continue simmering, stirring occasionally, for another 10 minutes. Strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer (make sure to strain into a measuring cup or other container!). Use a spoon or spatula to push all the liquid out of the chunky bits
Return sauce to pan and bring back to a simmer. Reduce, stirring occasionally, for an additional 5 to 7 minutes or until level of thickness is reached. Note that sauce tastes different when warm so let cool completely before adjusting spices
