Apple Cider Barbeque Sauce
It’s time for some Autumn BBQ’ing … try this simple home-made Apple Cider BBQ Sauce recipe! Sweet and tangy all in one!
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup diced onions (about 1/2 small onion)
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried mustard powder
1 bay leaf
2 cups apple cider
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1 chipotle in adobo, crushed
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
Melt the butter over medium heat in a nonreactive saucepan. Add the onions and garlic and cook, stirring, until the onions are softened and almost translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the paprika, mustard and bay leaf, and cook, stirring, until you can smell the spices, about 30 seconds. Add the apple cider, ketchup and chipotle, bring to a simmer and cook until the sauce has thickened slightly, about 15 minutes. Add the cider vinegar and cook for an additional 5 minutes. At this point, you have a mop sauce. The liquid should be fairly tart and thin in consistency.
