  • 2 Tablespoons Hoskins Raw Blackberry Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut aminos (or tamari)
  • 1 Tablespoon minced dried onion
  • 1 to 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon black strap molasses
  • ½ teaspoon mustard
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger
