Corn-Free, Sugar-Free and Gluten-Free Barbecue Sauce

on February 2, 2013

We live in Texas where we eat A LOT of BBQ. Having a jar of “sauce” on hand at all times is a must, especially in the grilling season. One of my favorite sauces KC Masterpiece Original contains high fructose corn syrup as the 2nd ingredient and caramel color which we are also trying to avoid.

INGREDIENTS: Tomato Puree (Water, Tomato Paste), High Fructose Corn Syrup, Molasses, Vinegar, Less than 2% of Spices, Natural Hickory Smoke Flavor, Natural Flavors, Modified Food Starch, Salt, Xanthan Gum, Dried Onion, Dried Garlic, Caramel ColorTurmeric, Paprika Extracts.

I discovered a recipe that I really really love on the Simply Natural Health blog. I’ve made it several times and think it is way better than anything in a bottle. I’ve even smuggled it in to the local BBQ place.

Enjoy!

15 oz. can tomato sauce

3 Tbsp. molasses

2 Tbsp. honey

3-4 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar (vary according to taste)

optional: 2 Tbsp. olive oil

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1 Tbsp. smoked paprika (this is the only ingredient I didn’t have in my regular spice drawer.  If you can’t get smoked paprika, substitute 2 tsp. regular paprika)

2 tsp. onion powder or granulated onion

1/2 tsp. ground cumin (add more if desired, to taste, for a smokier flavor)

1/2 tsp. ground mustard

1/2 tsp. chili powder

1/4 – 1/2 tsp. garlic powder or granulated garlic

1/4 tsp. ground sage

1/4 tsp. ground rosemary

1/4 tsp. ground allspice

1/8- 1/4 tsp. ground cloves

pinch of cayenne- or more, to taste

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer for at least 1/2 hour.  Cook longer to thicken sauce, or add  2 tsp. sorghum flour (or other GF flour) to thicken the sauce more quickly.

    This recipe has molasses and honey and is definitely NOT sugar free–it simply lacks highly refined sugar. Diabetics should stay away from this.

      You are correct. This recipe is free of refined sugar which is what we are avoiding in our diet. I’m not diabetic so I can’t comment on how one should eat. I’m sorry if the title was misleading. Thanks!
