North carolina vinegar sauce

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 gallon Cider vinegar; (5% acidity)
2 cups Water; (to taste), up to 4
¼ cup Salt
2 tablespoons Red pepper flakes
3 tablespoons Black pepper
2 tablespoons Crushed red pepper
1 cup Firmly packed dark brown sugar

I guess, if you really, really pushed it, you could call this a NC style barbecue sauce. After all, according to "Edna", this is from a relative who lives in NC, and it does contain vinegar. It looks like a good sauce, with good flavor balance, but I don't think I'd call this a true NC style sauce.

Mix all. Let sit for at least 4 hours before using.
