BBQ Season so... Let's Get Sauced

This blog post, photos & recipe is courtesy of Jennifer Cyphers

Since beginning my whole, organic, natural food journey, I’ve been trying my hand at making my own mayo, dressings, sauces....

 

And because it’s grilling and barbecue season, I thought now would be the perfect time to finally make a BBQ Sauce from scratch, using all natural, organic seasonings and ingredients. Making sure I use only high quality, preservative free products takes time in reading labels. But, it’s so worth the amazing flavors in your end results! Thankfully I never have to worry about that when using The Spice Hut ingredients.

 

You all probably know by now that The Spice Hut Fleur de Sel is my go to salt, but have you tried their Smoked Paprika? I must confess that I find every excuse to cook with it or add it to anything from creamy salads to deviled eggs. It is now a pantry staple in our house.

 

This homemade BBQ sauce is as easy as the ranch we have in our fridge at all times. You put all of the ingredients in a mason jar, mix well (or use immersion blender) and refrigerate. The sauce will save for one month and is the perfect compliment for all your summertime grilling.

 

BBQ SAUCE INGREDIENTS
  • 1 6oz can tomato paste, organic, sugar free, BPA free

  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce, organic, sugar free, BPA free

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened 100% apple sauce

  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos

  • 3 tsp Mojave from The Spice Hut (or to taste)

  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika from The Spice Hut (or to taste)

  • 1 tsp course salt, Fleur de Sel or Smoked Salt from The Spice Hut

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • 1/4 tsp cayenne powder (optional)

  • A few dashes of hot sauce-to taste.

 

Put all of the ingredients in mason jar and whisk, or use an immersion blender for a smoother sauce. Sauce will keep in refrigerator for up to one month. If you can keep from using it all that long...
