1 teaspoon red pepper

In a large nonstick saucepan melt the butter over low heat. Stir in the lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, honey, salt and red pepper. Cook over low heat for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the apple cider vinegar. Let sauce cool in the pan and then pour it into an airtight container. Refrigerate for up to 3 days until ready to use.
