This is a summer staple recipe!  Great with steaks, beef short ribs, chicken…yummmm!

Healing Cuisine’s Barbecue Sauce
Makes About 2 1/2 Cups

1 c organic ketchup
1 c organic tomato sauce
1/3 c raw brown sugar
1/3 c honey
1/2 c red wine vinegar
1/3 c unsulfured molasses
2 tsp all-natural liquid smoke (I recommend Colgin’s hickory flavor)
2 Tbsp grapeseed oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp celery seed
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper

1.)  In a large saucepan over medium heat, mix together the ketchup, tomato sauce, brown sugar, honey, wine vinegar, molasses, liquid smoke and grapeseed oil.  Stir in all the spices.

2.)  Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 20 minutes.  For thicker sauce, simmer longer.  Sauce can be thinned using a bit of water if necessary.  Brush sauce onto meat during the last 10 minutes of cooking.  Also makes a great pizza sauce for BBQ Chicken Pizza (I haven’t posted this recipe yet?  Alright, I’m on it!).  Lasts up to 2 weeks in the fridge or many months in the freezer.
