    this is delicious! the sauce is awesome. might try it on some chicken. if you're not sure of spice go very light on the cayenne; and the more you like spice the more you should add cayenne. the only thing I changed was plums are not in season so I cut up some dried plums and put them in the sauce. - 1/23/11
