Finger Lickin’ Good!

BBQ sauce is an art. Sure, the basics are all there in most any sauce. But each BBQ sauce needs its own personality. In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’m sharing with you the sweetest sauce in my arsenal – and man oh man, is it good! I confess – this is not a “healthy” recipe. It’s got a lot of sweet stuff in it. However, since we don’t tend to sit down to an entire bowl of BBQ sauce, I think in moderation we will be fine. 😉

Kiya’s Honey BBQ Sauce

1 c. raw, unfiltered, local wildflower honey

1/4 c. molasses (I know, not traditional sugar – bad girl)

3 Tbsp. organic ketchup (or homemade!)

3/4 tsp. paprika

1 1/2 Tbsp. organic or homemade seasoned salt

1/8 tsp. pepper

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. minced garlic

1/4 c. organic steak sauce (or i use “camp” sauce)

2 Tbsp. Worcestershire

1 Tbsp. prepared mustard

1 1/4 c. brown sugar (as minimally processed as possible)

Ok. Here comes the hard part. Mix everything together. Chill in the fridge at least 30 minutes. That’s it! While this sauce is great as soon as its done resting, it gets even better after a few days of sitting in the fridge. This recipe makes about a half quart. I usually double it and keep the whole quart in the fridge for a while. Want to make my Honey BBQ Chicken? Simple. See below.
