Homemade Cranberry Barbecue Sauce

This recipe I found years ago on the back of a Cranberry bag. This BBQ sauce is so delicious. Its great on oven baked chicken or ribs or used on the grill.

Homemade Cranberry Barbecue Sauce

In a medium sauce pan over medium heat add:
1-2 TBL. Oil of your choice
1 Small/Medium Onion chopped
Cook for about 8-10 minutes or until golden brown
Season with Salt and Pepper to taste
Minced Garlic to taste
Cook for one minute

Add and stir in:
¼ Cup Brown Sugar
¼ Cup Tomato Paste
1 TBL. Dry Mustard
½ – 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
Give it a good mix, cook over medium high heat for 3 minutes until Fragrant. Stirring every 20-30 seconds.

4-5 TBL. Apple Cider Vinegar
Sometimes I will add some Worcestershire sauce to taste

Stir in:
1 Cup Frozen or Fresh Cranberries
Cook for 3-4 minutes until they begin to Pop

Stir in:
1-1/2 Cups Vegetable Broth
Optional: add Liquid Smoke and some Hot Sauce
Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low. Simmer until desired thickness. I like my sauce thick
I simmered it for 15 minutes.
Remove from the heat and cool for 10 minutes.

Pour the Sauce into a Blender or Food Processor
Because the sauce is so hot I covered the blender with a towel for safety.
Puree for 30 seconds or until smooth.

Pour the Sauce into a Mason Jar. Refrigerate up to 2 weeks.

Use the sauce as you would any bottled sauce.
