Homemade Sugar Free BBQ Sauce

I’ve been looking for a recipe for sugar free, great tasting BBQ Sauce. I found a lot of recipes but they all had tons of sugar in them. So, I decided to modify a couple of them and came up with my own.

Blue Berry BBQ Sauce – sugar free

Fresh blue berries, apple cider vinegar, stevia, maple syrup, cumin, cinnamon, bay leaf, salt, chipotle chili pepper, ancho chili pepper or chili powder, onion, garlic and ground coriander.

You rough chop up the blue berries with the apple cider vinegar in a blender and then put them in a sauce pan to cook for 30-40 minutes. This is when you add all of the other ingredients.  After it has cooked, pour the mix into the blender and blend it until smooth. (Be sure your blender can handle the cooked temperature of the mix). Put back into the sauce pan and simmer until reduced about 50%.

The blue berries give it a great fresh flavor and the apple cider vinegar gives it a little bite.

I made the same recipe in a Mixed Berry flavor using fresh strawberries, black berries and raspberries.

The BBQ Sauce tastes great on beef, pork, chicken and fish.
