Makes
3 quarts of barbecue sauce

Ingredients

  • Canola oil, as needed
  • 4 onions, diced
  • 2 jalapeños, diced
  • 1 head garlic, diced
  • 7 peaches, diced
  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 Cup honey
  • 1 Cup white-wine vinegar
  • 2 bottles wheat beer, such as Starr Hill Love
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

In a medium-sized saucepan heat 1-2 tablespoons of canola oil over medium-low and sweat the onion, jalapeño, and garlic until tender, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. 

Add the peaches and tomatoes and cook for 10 minutes more. Season again with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the honey and vinegar and cook another 10 minutes, then add the beer. Bring to a boil and then simmer until reduced by ½, about 2 hours. Stir frequently to prevent burning.

Working in batches, purée the sauce in a blender until smooth. Check the sauce for seasonings and then pour into a plastic container to cool. Allow to cool completely before using. 

Peach Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Peach Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
