Combine all the ingredients, and simmer in a heavy kettle for 2 hours, uncovered.
Be careful with this because it will burn.
Stir often, and watch that the liquid content does not evaporate.
You may need to add a bit of water.
You may use stainless steel for this, but be sure to place a heat diffuser under the pan so that the sauce will not burn.
