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.
