Maple Orange BBQ SauceFree of Gluten and Refined Sugars
Ingredients:6 oz. Tomato Paste
1.5 C Orange Juice
1/4 C Balsamic or White Wine Vinegar (I have used both but, I really love the depth the balsamic gives it)
2 tsp Molasses
1 Tbsp Low Sodium, GF Soy Sauce
1/4 Red Onion
1 Tbsp Mustard prepared (I like Organicville Stone Ground Mustard)
2 Cloves of Garlic
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Chili Powder (I like the spicy kick in Frontier's Fiesta Chili Powder but, any is fine)
1/2 tsp Celery Seed
1/2 tsp Xanthun Gum
2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
1/4 c Coconut Sugar OR Honey (It will be slightly thicker with the coconut sugar but, either way tastes great)
1 tsp of smoked salt (or sea salt if you don't have smoked) I just like a slightly smoky flavor to my BBQ sauce.
- Put everything into your blender and blend on high for 15-20 seconds.
- Transfer to a pot
- Bring to a boil while whisking and then reduce to a very low simmer.
- Let cook for at least 30 min, stirring periodically
- Alternatively, you could cook on low for 3-4 hours in the crockpot.
