South Jersey BBQ Sauce (by way of Sydney, Australia)

This is a take on my beloved grandmothers' recipe which I have altered slightly. I just used it on some pulled pork I did in the smoker, and it was loved by all who tried.
4-5 cups of tomato sauce/ketchup
1 cup of apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup of packed brown sugar
2-3 tablespoons of molasses
1/2 finely diced onion
1/4 finely diced green pepper
2-3 cloves of minced garlic
1 tablespoon of yellow mustard
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
2 red hot chili peppers - finely chopped
1 inch of finely chopped fresh ginger (Optional but really works well with pork - I like it with or without)
Sweat the onions, green pepper and garlic (and ginger if using) for a minute, add chili peppers.
Add ketchup and rest of ingredients over low heat, simmer for 15-20 minutes - stirring regularly. It will burn if ignored!
