How to Make BBQ Sauce

Any barbecue-fan knows that store bought sauce will never ever be as delicious as the one you make at home.
By Tamara Novacoviç

Oh, this wonderful summer grilling time! Are you a bbq fan? I love barbecues…everything tastes so much better prepared this way. I like to grill anything, even fruit. And let’s face it, I mean, who doesn’t have their own favorite bbq sauce? Well, even if you don’t, here’s a great idea that could turn out to be your new favorite. Forget store bought sauces, home made has always been and always will be so much better! On top of that, this sauce is so simple to make!

The idea comes from Martha Stewart. There are so many variations to the bbq sauce theme and this one quickly became my favorite.

    Looking at the color of the sauce, I thought it might be peach or apricot bbq sauce. Fruit bbq sauce I get sometimes, but nothing beats a great savory bbq sauce, glad to see it’s not all fruited up.

    Thanks Tamara for this bbq sauce! I love bbqs too, but I’ne never tried to make homemade sauces because I was afraid they were too complicated to prepare. I’ve never used store bought sauces either, because I can’t stand their fake taste. This sauce instead is so easy and quick to make!!! I’d love to try it next time I grill! :)
