APRICOT GINGER BARBECUE SAUCE

APRICOT GINGER BARBECUE SAUCE

What to do when you’re moving and want to clear out some cupboards.  You make barbecue sauce.

I had one jar of unopened apricot preserves, 4 lonely garlic cloves, and 2″ length of fresh ginger and some golden corn syrup (which I never use any more but has been hanging around forever because unpasteurized honey is now my go to sweetener of choice). A few tablespoons of soya sauce were left in my Bragg Aminos bottle and a slurp of sesame oil and hot sauce rounded out the ingredients list.

  Two bottles emptied and in the recycle bin and one retained to hold the cooled sauce.

Really delicious stirred into pulled chicken or pork then crisped up on the barbecue or oven for carnitas.

(my recipe for carnitas here)

Super tasty addition slathered on grilled shrimp, salmon or  as I did for tonight’s supper on little meatballs.

How about trying it on those double porker bacon wrapped tenderloin bites (recipe here)

 

The rest of the sauce is now onboard for future grilling experiences…thinking ribs or chicken.
