This is our favourite bbq sauce recipe. You should make some and keep it in the fridge because you will like it. Then you can serve it on the food that matches. Pork chops for example. Burgers. Sausages. Or vegie sausages even. Where ever you might normally use bbq sauce.
1 kg really ripe tomatoes – blanched, peeled, smooshed. 1 cup balsamic, 1cup muscovado sugar, 1 onion, 4 garlic cloves – crushed, 1 teaspoon grated ginger, chipotle puree – 1 tablespoon, 1 teaspoon cumin seeds, 1 cinnamon stick, 2 green apple – cored and chopped, 1 pinch of clove.
Saute the onion, garlic, ginger, clove, cumin and apple in 1 tablespoon of oil until soft. Add sugar, cook and stir until caramel. Add balsamic and reduce by 1/2. Add tomato pulp and a little salt and simmer gently for 40 mins, stirring occassionally. Puree well.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
The chipotle leaves a bit of spice, so use a little less if necessary. Keep in mind that used with plenty of crisp salad or slaw, the spice is negated somewhat.
That is all. Thanks.
