    Copycat A1 Steak Sauce

    1/2 cup water
    1/4 cup golden raisins
    1/2 cup aged balsamic vinegar
    1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
    1/4 cup ketchup
    1/4 cup dijon mustard
    1 pinch cayenne pepper
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    2 garlic cloves, cut in half
    2 tablespoons onion, chopped
    1/2 teaspoon celery seed
    1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
    1/2 orange, cut into 2 pieces

    DIRECTIONS

    1. Add the ingredients (except for the orange juice) to a small saucepan.
    2. Squeeze the oranges into the pan, then drop in the rinds.
    3. On low heat, stirring occasionally, let it simmer for 15 minutes.
    4. Keep the heat low allowing for a very low gentle heat, not a hard boil.
    5. To check doneness dip in a spoon and run your finger over the back, the line should stay clean.
    6. Turn off the heat and strain out the garlic and orange pieces.
    7. Let cool completely before serving.
    I shall try making that over here myself

Their last FB post about it was back in October and it's hard to understand why there is nothing going on there in such a prime location.
    Seems they've had a flurry of recent posts about an imminent re-opening.

    Good to see. And it sounds like they be smartening themselves up, too! You'd think if they are close to re-opening, though, they might say a bit more than just 'soon'!

    I've just been checking out the website of 1921 By Norman Van Aken, his newish venture in Mount Dora. It's been on my radar for a while, but we haven't had (or more accurately, made) the opportunity to get there. Could work well for us as a bruch or lunch option. http://1921nva.com/

    It's also reminded me that at the top of my wishlist for dining in Central Florida is Markham's, the member only restaurant at Golden Oak. There were a few opportunies for DVC members to dine there last year and a couple more via the Delicious Disney program, but none we were in a position to take advantage of.
