I have a real problem with BBQ sauce,I could seriously put it on anything. I've been on a quest to find a really good homemade BBQ sauce recipe.I've tried a few but none of them made my mouth water so I'm experimenting with my own. I made a batch that was so spicy my mouth burned for 2 days and then another one tasted like poo so I made this one last night and I must say I thought it was my best so far. It's still a work in progress but here it is.
3 cups ketchup 3 TBSP brown sugar 1 TBSP maple syrup dash of Worcestershire sauce 1/4 Cup apple cider vinegar 2 TBSP prepared mustard 1 TBSP onion powder 1 TBSP garlic powder dash of lemon juice 1 tsp paprika dash of hot sauce If you want more heat I'd add some cayenne pepper,but not too much if you value your taste buds!
I used it on chicken and I'm going to try ribs next.
I'm a stay at home Christian mom of 7 kids ranging in age from 19 down to 6. I am truly a country girl at heart and hope to someday move to a small farm out in nowhere :) I love my family and my husband,I love to cook and try new recipes~mostly down home style food I ate growing up.
If you want a glimpse of Southern life,Come close and walk with me;I'll tell you all the simple things,That you are sure to see.You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees;
Caterpillars on the step,Wooden porches cleanly swept;Watermelons on the vine, Strong majestic Georgia pines Rocking chairs and front yard swingsJunebugs flying on a stringTurnip greens and hotcornbread,Coleslaw and barbecueFried okra, fried corn,fried green tomatoes,Fried pies and pickles too.
There's ice cold tea that 's syrupy sweet,And cool, green grass beneath your feet;Catfish nipping in the lake,And fresh young boys on the make.You'll see all these thingsAnd much, much more,In a way of life, that I adore.
