Don’t you just love a good BBQ sauce? One that can work for just about any recipe, any dip? When I first learned about eating healthy and why I should avoid ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, and preservatives, I was really bummed at how limiting that made shopping for condiment foods like ketchup, mayonnaise, and BBQ sauce. For a while I just went without until I realized I could make my own at home for a fraction of the price!
If you’re starting out and feel defeated like I did about the junk that gets put into sauces and condiments, then you’ll love my recipe. This is a tomato base BBQ sauce, which means it can also be used as a ketchup, if you like it a little zippy. It’s especially a great marinade for chicken too.
Also, I wrote 4T-7T of molasses, meaning if you want your sweet & spicy more on the sweet side, use 7T. If you like your sweet and spicy on the spicy side, use 4T.
Simmering is key here so take your time and allow your house to smell like a BBQ smoke house.
If you love this recipe, try my paleo mayo too!
