Most store bought versions of BBQ sauce contain high fructose corn syrup or some other form of processed sugar.  This BBQ sauce recipe contains no processed sugar and I promise you it’s delicious!

This recipe makes a good sized amount and I imagine it would stay good in the fridge for a couple of weeks.

We will be using this spread in some upcoming recipes.  This BBQ sauce recipe is vegetarian and can easily be made vegan if you use maple syrup instead of honey.
