Whaddaya do when you have a 4-pound container of Strawberries?!?  Why…  ya make Strawberry BBQ Sauce, that’s what ya do!

I came up with a recipe for Strawberry BBQ Sauce a while back (I did a Root Beer BBQ Sauce, too!)  and decided it was time to make it, again.  It’s super easy.

Im think that this summer I’m going to experiment with different fruits.  I’ll bet peaches would work really well with a different vinegar.

Strawberry BBQ Sauce

  • 2 pounds strawberries, hulled and roughly sliced
  • 1 small bell pepper, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 8oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup lingonberry vinegar
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chipotle powder
  • salt and pepper

Add strawberries, onion,  and bell pepper to saucepan and cook until strawberries release theiur juices and peppers and onions soften.  Add spices and cook well.

Add  brown sugar and then lingonberry vinegar.  Add tomato sauce and remaining ingredients.

Bring to boil and then simmer.

Blend everything with an immersion blender until smooth.

Continue simmering until thickened.

And the no-knead bread dough makes great dinner rolls, too.

But while this was all yummy and good, I have a feeling I’m going to be paying another buck tomorrow…..

Time for some serious salads.
