   Simmer foods in this sauce, as the foods absorb the
   salty taste, you may need to add more soy sauce to
   compensate.
   
   Do not use fish in this sauce if you want to keep it
   long.
   
   Basic Sauce is used over and over again to slow-simmer
   a number of foods. It imparts its own flavor to what
   is cooked, and grows more savory with the cooking of
   different foods.
