Paula's Homemade Barbecue Sauce

I made up a batch of homemade barbecue sauce so that I could add a large spoonful to baked beans. It was towards an effort to make barbecued baked beans which I served with rotisserie chicken and macaroni and cheese, ala Kenny Rogers style. The rest of the sauce, I am saving as a base for barbecue chicken pizza. I would recommend making your own sauce over store bought sauce anytime- the flavour is so much richer and more intense. This would be good if mixed up with chicken wings and drumlets as well.

3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup ketchup
1 onion diced
5 cloves garlic minced
3/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup water
2 tsp mustard powder
2 tsp paprika
1.5 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 chilli padis diced (seeds discarded)
2 star anise
1 tsp cloves
1 tbs dark soya sauce
1/2 cup of coffee (already mixed with water- mix 1/2 tsp of instant coffee with 1/2 cup hot water to dissolve before adding)

1. Mix up all the ingredients in a pot and boil under low heat for an hour until onions and garlic have nearly dissolved and the sauce reaches the right thickened consistency.
