Sauces, especially barbecue sauce, are highly personal. Some folks guard their secrets with uncanny energy and then take them to the grave. Go figure. Here’s a base recipe for a southern style vinegar sauce. Take this and make it your own. Really. It’s yours. Enjoy.
- 1 cup tomato puree
- ¼ cup apple cup cider vinegar
- ¼ cup molasses
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp mustard powder
- salt & pepper to taste
Combine ingredients and bring to a boil and reduce immediately to a simmer. Stir frequently with a wooden spoon until thick. Once desired textures’ reached place to the side. The only trick’s that you can’t leave it unattended because overheating or settling will cause it to burn. Guess that’s why it’s usually made while watching sports.
