1. Carmelize the sugar in a saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently.
When sugar has melted, add the soy sauce & all the other ingredients. 2.
Bring to a boil, & stir until the sugar has dissolved completely. Cook over
low heat for 10 minutes. 3. Allow this somewhat thickened syrup to cool, &
pour it into one or more bottles. Author says not to strain the sauce as
believes the garlic, anise, salam & laos continue to provide flavor. Keeps
for several months refrigerated. Makes about 2 3/4 cups. Notes: can often
purchase this, sometimes under "Conimex" label, Ketjap Benteng Manis.
