    4       tb           Soy sauce,(dark/light/usual)
    2       tb           Peanut butter/black bean pas
    1       tb           Honey/molasses
    2       ts           White vinegar
      1/8   ts           Garlic powder
    2       ts           Sesame seed oil
   20       dr           Chinese-style hot sauce
      1/8   ts           Pepper
   *The original without the variations stolen by Matt
   Giwer from AP Recipes credited to Dee Wang who advised
   peanut butter. *EXPERIMENT!  Now you have control of
   the taste.  Lighter for chicken and  pork, stronger
   for beef and game.  Sweeter for Dim Sum. *The
   commercial recipe is presumably the black bean paste.
    I presume they are the same as Mexican/Spanish black
   beans. *Different types of soy, molasses, some of the
   oil being hot pepper oil,
   other styles of pepper sauce.  All kinds of
   variations.  However, with  light soy and honey, the
   taste of peanut dominates. *Simply mix together.  At
   first it does not appear like it will mix but   keep
   at it just a bit longer and you have Hoisin.  Letting
   it rest does   not appear to improve the taste
