    1 tsp. ground chipotle pepper,1/2 tsp. ground white pepper,3/4 tsp. ground ginger,1/8 tsp. ground cloves,1/2 cup packed brown sugar,
    These are some of the ingredients in a B-B-Q- sauce that I make and someone told me they liked the sauce on ice cream. Again hot and spicy mixed with sweet, sometimes unusual combinations connect the right way, sort of that 5th taste people are talking about it will always be a mystery as to why it works but it does. This I think has to do with balance Yin Yang.This recipe is balanced.

    Thank you
