Homemade BBQ Sauce

Because of our 5th kids' allergy to corn, we make our own "happy" corn-free BBQ sauce from home. FIIIIIIINALLY found a recipe that is super YUMMY!!!

Originally got this recipe from but have made some modifications.

Homemade BBQ Sauce
Makes about 16 servings

2 T lemon juice (fresh is best)
1 onion, peeled & diced
2 T brown sugar
1 T mustard
1/2 t ground black pepper
1-1/2 t salt
1/4 t cayenne pepper
1/4 C white vinegar
1/2 C water
1/4 C vegetable oil
1/2 C ketchup (homemade OR store bought ketchup made with REAL sugar)
2 T Worcestershire sauce (corn-free OR homemade)
1-1/2 t liquid smoke flavoring (optional-- we always omit this)

In a medium saucepan, mix the first 10 ingredients. Bring to a boil, then simmer uncovered 20 min.
Stir in ketchup & Worcestershire sauce (& liquid smoke flavoring, if using) into the mixture. Return to a boil, then remove from heat. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Fits well in a canning jar! :-)

 Here's the first 10 ingredients getting ready to boil.

Add real sugar/homemade ketchup & corn-free Worcestershire sauce.
Bring to a boil.

Looking fab.

:-) :-) :-)

Now... my hubby doesn't like chunky BBQ. He prefers it smooth. So I just do a quick puree in the blender.

Voila! Smooth, yummy BBQ!

Hope you like it as much as we do!!!

And if you ever find a corn-free store bought version of Worcestershire sauce, LET ME KNOW!!!
