Best Balsamic BBQ Sauce

Best Balsamic BBQ Sauce… EVER!

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 1/2 cups ketchup

1/4 cup molasses

1 cup Balsamic – your choice (Olive Destination 18 year Traditional Balsamic works best here)

2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons dry mustard

2 tablespoons Olive Destination Baklouti Olive Oil,  or any fused/infused olive oil of your choice

1 small white or yellow onion, minced

2 teaspoons granulated garlic

2 teaspoons smoked paprika (mild or spicy)

2 teaspoons Olive Destination Cayenne Olive Oil(optional for lovers of heat)

2 teaspoons kosher salt

Fresh ground pepper to taste

Heat the olive oil of your choice in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add ketchup, Worcestershire, molasses, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, mustard, granulated garlic, smoked paprika, black pepper, cayenne pepper and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to low and simmer until slightly thickened, about 30 minutes, stirring frequently.

Transfer sauce to the jar of a blender and blend until smooth. Let cool to room temperature, transfer to a jar and store in refrigerator for up to a month. This is great on everything – chicken, ribs, burgers, shoes. You can literally put it on anything, and I encourage you to do so.

Makes approximately 3 cups
