    Apricot BBQ Sauce

    • 1/2 tsp olive oil
    • 3 tbsp tomato paste
    • 1 tsp garlic powder
    • 1 tsp onion powder
    • 1 tsp sweet paprika
    • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
    • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
    • 1 cup apricot jam
    • 2 tbsp honey
    • 1 tbsp molasses
    • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 tbsp brown sugar
    • 1/2 tsp white ground pepper more or less for heat
    • 1 tsp salt
    • Add small amount of oil, tomato paste, garlic and onion powders, both kinds of paprika, and cumin to a small sauce pan and saute on medium heat for five minutes until spices are toasted and fragrant.
    • Stir in the water, apple cider vinegar, apricot jam, honey, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and salt and pepper.
    • On medium high heat simmer for 15-20 minutes until reduced by half and thickened.
    • Cool and store in an airtight container in fridge until ready to use.
    • Use chunky or smooth apricot jam, and either leave pieces in, or puree once the sauce has simmered all the way.
    • Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
    • Adjust the pepper amount up or down depending on heat desired. Swapping for cayenne pepper will increase spiciness.
    • Will store for up to one month in fridge, covered.

    This looks good! Have you ever added bourbon to it? Just curious? This recipe looks fabulous for some glazed salmon!

      Never did the Bourbon thing. Ironically, I have never put booze in any sauce I have ever made. No particular reason; just never occurred to me to do it. But now that you mention it...

      BTW - I have an amazing recipe for porn loin or beef tenderloin that I will be posting later in the week. I'll be making it on Thursday. It is some serious, off-the-hook Columbian sh*t!

    Sounds great. We really like Vivian Howard’s blueberry sauce, especially on chicken, and this sounds like something we would really enjoy too. https://www.somewheresouthtv.com/rec...rbecue-chicken
