The Super-Secret BBQ Sauce – Recipe

(Photo/Elizabeth Dougherty)

This is really a dipping sauce. It has no corn syrup in it and not a lot of sugar, so it’s not as thick as your usual sauce, although it will thicken a bit as it cools.  We thought it was good when we developed the recipe, but when my son started asking for it, I knew it was a keeper. Here’s the Food Nation Radio Network recipe:

Ingredients (organic, if possible)

3 cups apple juice

1 TB lemon juice

½ cup ketchup with NO corn syrup in it

1/8 cup Dijon

¼ cup brown sugar

1/8 tsp clove, cinnamon, ginger, red pepper

½ tsp cumin

¼ tsp white pepper

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp sweet paprika

½ tsp chili powder

Method

Combine the above ingredients and reduce by half. That’s it! Enjoy!
