Apple Cider Vinegar BBQ Sauce
From The Comfort of Apples: Modern Recipes for an Old-Fashioned Favorite
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 25-30 minutes
Makes 2 cups
½ cup honey
1 cup apple juice
1 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp brown sugar
½ cup ketchup (I used American Chili Sauce – reminder of my mother’s sauces)
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1. In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, cook the honey until deeply amber (5 minutes or so).
2. Pour the apple juice – be careful, it will sputter, and reduce to half. Reduce heat to medium and whisk in the rest of the ingredients. Simmer for 15 minutes or so. Remove from heat and let cool before storing in a clean jar.
This recipe is not your usual thick BBQ sauce. It’s more of a wonderful glaze and I used it for some very tasty, sticky chicken wings.
