Homemade BBQ Sauce
I have made things in my crockpot with barbecue flavors from scratch plenty of times. The other day, I was talking to Kevin about barbecue sauce, and he mentioned how expensive it was at the store. That got me thinking--can I make it from scratch all by itself?
It took 25 seconds of searching to find a basic barbecue sauce recipe--and it was as easy as could be. I won’t put it here because, as usual, I altered it by adding stuff to it, which I didn’t measure out, so what I made can’t be duplicated. It came out scrumptious. I added fresh basil, oregano and a pepper from the garden. I also tossed in an onion. It took no time at all. While it was simmering, I cooked some fresh vegetables and macaroni. I put them all together, and had a great lunch.
I would say that there is no excuse to not make it from scratch as long as you have ketchup, vinegar and sugar--and a simple recipe from the internet. Don’t let the grocery stores fool you--barbecue sauce doesn’t have to come from a bottle. It can come from your kitchen.
