Blueberry Bourbon Barbecue Sauce
I had to try making it myself.
I thought it would be best to measure all my ingredients prior to starting. Jalapenos were from my garden, and boy are they hot this year.
First batch went right over some home raised chicken I roasted. This would be wonderful on pork and fish too.
This recipe comes from Eating Well, but their site has way too many advertisements on it. I found the same recipe on Food.com - Blueberry Bourbon Barbecue Sauce. I followed the recipe exactly, but was worried my hot peppers would be to hot for this.
How was it?
Good. Not spectacular nor amazing, but just good. The blueberries overpowered the heat, so there was no balance in sweet and heat. I was surprised, considering how hot our jalapenos are this year. I may make it one more time, adding more jalapenos. Not sure. I put a small amount in the freezer as well, to try over fish later.
It freezes for up to 3 months.
Note: That other dish is a spaghetti squash dish we make from allrecipes, using olives, tomatoes, garlic, onion, basil and feta cheese. We enjoyed our first spaghetti squash this year. I should have added some broccoli too. We are getting a lot of it now.
