To freeze, spoon into freezer container, cover, label, and freeze at 0 degrees F up to 4 months. To serve, defrost sauce 20 to 30 minutes in microwave oven on Defrost setting, stirring several times, or thaw in refrigerator 8 to 24 hours. Gently warm sauce in saucepan or in microwave oven on 50% power, 3 to 5 minutes, stirring several times. Recipe By : the California Culinary Academy File
