This simple sauce is easy to make and absolutely delicious and addictive. PErfect on beans, burritos, eggs or anything that needs a tangy life. This recipe will last a year in the fridge because it has so much vinegar in it.

1 medium onion, quartered
1 large garlic clove
3 c water
2 c white vinegar
1tbs salt plus 1 tsp salt
1/4 c liquid pectin or 3 tbs powdered pectin

2-Turn off heat and add pectin, stir well to incorporate.
3-Let mixture cool off to room temperature, then place in the stand blender.
4-Blend on high speed for 2 minutes.
