Bourbon Black Cherry & Blood Orange BBQ Sauce ~ Amazing
An amazing balance of tangy, savory, sweet and spicy!! You won't ever buy store bought BBQ sauce again if you give this a try.
1 T olive oil
1 cup finely diced onions
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup good quality bourbon whiskey
2 T apple cider vinegar
1 cup all-natural ketchup
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 T ancho chili powder or cayenne (your preference)
1 cup E.D. Smith Black Cherry Raspberry Blood Orange fruit spread** (Get at Costco’s exclusively)
sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
Heat olive oil on medium heat in sauce pan, and sweat onion and garlic until clear or about 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and simmer on medium low to allow alcohol to dissipate, and ingredients to combine, maybe 3 or 4 minutes stirring regularly. Allow to cool, and if you prefer smooth BBQ sauces, you can blend if you desire. Great on ribs, pulled pork, brisket or grilled chicken.
**You could substitute any cherry jam or fruit spread, but this particular E.D. Smith product has additional great fruits and flavors already in it. Perfect for BBQ!
