Best Blueberry BBQ Sauce Recipe (lots of blueberries)
Homemade bbq sauce recipe made with blueberries? Yep! This Blueberry BBQ Sauce is so much tastier than any store-bought bottled sauce. There's just a touch of spice and a little sweetness...all perfectly balanced. With very little prep and some cook time, you'll be left with the tastiest homemade bbq sauce that can be used on so many things.
1tablespoon,cilantro steams , minced (few stalks, no need to use leaves)
In a pot (I used a small dutch oven), heat olive oil on medium low. Add garlic, shallot and chili peppers. Cook about 5 minutes.
Add remainder of ingredients and stir to combine. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook about an hour or until you've reached your desired consistency/thickness, stirring every 20 to 30 minutes.
Carefully using an immersion blender, blitz sauce (or use potato masher or spoon or simply leave as is). I didn't puree a lot because I wanted some texture. Serve with your favourite bbq foods!
Use a heavy bottomed pot. Whenever I'm making sauces or jams I find that a heavy bottomed pot works best and stuff don't tend to stick like it would with a thinner pot.
Fresh cilantro stems were added to this blueberry bbq sauce to add a little freshness and something different. If you're not a cilantro fan, feel free to substitute with parsley or omit altogether.
Don't leave the sauce and do whatever. Be mindful to check on occasionally and stir so there's no sticking/burning.
Not into spice? Omit the chili peppers if you like (though this isn't a spicy bbq sauce). If you like things spicier, though, add a little more.
As mentioned above, I used an immersion blender to lightly blitz the sauce. If you don't have that, use a potato masher. Alternatively, just break up with a spoon or leave as is. Make as smooth or as chunky as you wish.
