In today's busy world, you can find almost any food in a jar, bottle, can, or package. Just add water, and you have instant *fill in the blank here*. Sadly most of those jar sauces tend to be either chock full of salt, or totally flavorless.
There are a few sauces that are simple enough to make from scratch, that taste so much better than anything that ever came out of a jar. So, without further adieu.
