|Tomato sauce||16 Ounce|
|Water||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|Garlic||4 Clove (20 gm), minced / crushed|

|Liquid smoke/Hickory or mesquite||1 Tablespoon (apple flavored)|
|Ground coriander||1⁄4 Teaspoon|
|Red wine vinegar||1 Tablespoon|
|Thickening agent/Such as file' powder, flour, or corn starch.i like using file' powder because it is made out of ground sasafras and it adds a great flavor to the sauce.||1 Tablespoon|
in a 2 to 4 qt sauce pan start with the 2 cups of water and the tomato sauce, bring mixture to a boil. boil for 2 minutes, reduce heat to low until slightly simmereing and leave the heat setting to med low or low.
start adding the rest of the ingredients as listed stirring constantly, i would use a wooden spoon or whisk. once you have reached the end of the ingredient list and everything is mixed well and slow dancing with each other :) continue to simmer for 2 to three hours or until contents have reduced by one half, or the mixture has reached your desired thickness.
serve hot, or store in the fridge.
this will make about 16oz of sauce, this should keep in the fridge for at least 2 weeks.
