  1. Line a skillet with a thin layer of water.

  2. Saute onion and garlic until translucent, about 3 minutes.

  3. Add tomato paste and stir to coat.

  4. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, until excess liquid has absorbed.

  5. Add remaining ingredients and cook over low 5-10 minutes.

  6. Transfer to a blender and puree until smooth.

  7. Taste, adding more molasses or vinegar (for a tangier sauce) as desired.
