   ~----------------- In a heavy nonaluminum saucepan
   over medium heat, melt the butter and saute the onion,
   celery, pepper, and garlic for 5 minutes, or until the
   onion is tender but not browned.  Add the remaining
   ingredients.  Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, until
   the sauce thickens, stirring occasionally. Discard the
   lemon slices and bay leaf.  Brush the sauce on
   chicken, ribs, frankfurters, or hamburgers during
   grilling, broiling, or baking. Makes 2-1/4 cup.
