Mmmm BBQ Sauce, great in a homemade burger or as a marinade, most BBQ Sauces are extremely high in sugar (more than 30% Sugar!)
My quick no-cook recipe is smoky, spicy and tangy and obviously delicious. It also contains only around 1 teaspoon of refined Sugar! (which is from the Worcestershire Sauce you need to add) Woohoo!
You will need:
1/2 Cup Hot Water
1 Heaped Tbsp of Local Organic Honey
2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp Garlic Powder OR 2 Cloves of Garlic crushed and chopped with the salt measurement
1/2 tsp Hot Chilli Powder
1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp White Pepper
1/2 Cup Tomato Paste – Organic if possible
First things first
You need to make sure you have a clean, sterilised glass jar or bottle ready to go, of approx 300ml capacity.
In a glass jug, combine the Honey in the Hot Water, mixing well until the Honey has dissolved completely. Next add Worcestershire Sauce and then all of the Powdered Ingredients, mixing in well to avoid any lumps. Finally stir in the Tomato Paste, again mixing well!
At this point you may be forgiven for trying your sauce
If you are wanting super spicy sauce you could add more spices in now or perhaps sub the Chilli powder for Cayenne Pepper.
Using a funnel, carefully pour sauce into your sterilised jar or bottle and leave in the fridge for the flavours to meld together for a few hours before using.
As this sauce is uncooked and without vinegar to preserve it you are best to keep it in the fridge and consume within 2 weeks.
