Maple BBQ Sauce

Maple BBQ sauce is just SO great. That's the only way to put it! Maple just adds a little something extra to everything you use it in. You can put this on chicken, salmon, pork chops, ribs... everything!

  • 1/2 small white onion, diced
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves of fresh garlic, smashed
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 oz tomato paste

  • 2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 cup pure Vermont maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon dried ground mustard
  • 1/8 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tablespoon Kosher salt

Combine oil, onion, ginger, garlic, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. Sauté until the onion is cooked. Add the vinegar, water, tomato paste, soy sauce, sesame oil, and maple syrup, and whisk together. Add the remainder of the ingredients but only add half of the salt. Simmer on low heat for 30 minutes and then purée. Add the remainder of the salt to your taste. Place in large Mason jar and refrigerate for up to two weeks.
