Blueberry-Bourbon Barbecue Sauce
“It is not every day that you get a sweet and tangy barbecue sauce that also boasts a healthy dose of antioxidants. Try it with beef, chicken, pork or even some grilled shrimp.”
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 small red onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1-2 jalapenos, seeded and chopped
½ cup bourbon
2 cups fresh or frozen (not thawed) blueberries
½ cup ketchup
⅓ cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon molasses
⅛ teaspoon ground allspice
1Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and just starting to brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and jalapeno and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add bourbon, increase heat to high and bring to a boil; cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Stir in blueberries, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, molasses and allspice; return to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 20 minutes.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 3 months.
