Tangy BBQ Sauce

Tangy BBQ Sauce
BBQ sauce .... an easy way to make your own!
Making BBQ sauce is quite easy to make with ingredients you readily have on hand. I came up with this recipe when I needed some BBQ sauce for basting some ribs I was making that day. I am sure you can adjust the recipe to your own liking. I like mine on the tangy side and added a bit more acid in the form of vinegar to offset the sweetness. You can easily use honey instead of the preserves and adjust the heat to your liking. I like the chipotle flavor for its smokiness but, you can use any chile flavor or even omit. Hope you enjoy...

Tangy BBQ Sauce Ingredients: It makes about a cup of BBQ sauce. You can easily double or triple the recipe.
  • 2 TBS molasses
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed
  • 2 TBS dried chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 tsp coarse black pepper
  • 2 TBS apricot preserves
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp chipotle powder


1. In a medium saucepan, place all ingredients and simmer for a half hour or so until thickened. It will thicken a bit more as it cools off.
