Sweet and Tangy Barbecue Sauce Recipe

I’ve successfully used overcooked cherry jam, blackberry jam, and mango jam to make barbecue sauce. This recipe can also be made with jam that isn’t overcooked.

Yields 2 cups.

  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 cup homemade jam
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  1. Place all ingredients in a small saucepan, and heat slowly over medium-low heat, stirring until combined.
  2. Use with grilled hamburgers, baked beans, or as a sandwich spread. Store in refrigerator.
