Making your own BBQ sauce is easier than one might think and it tastes far superior to anything purchased in the grocery store. There are plenty of recipes online for BBQ sauces but many of them use ketchup as a base ingredient. I decided that I wanted to develop a bbq sauce recipe that used more original ingredients. Earlier this year, I made and posted two recipes:
Since then, I have made both of these sauces a number of times. One time when I made the Coca Cola Habanero sauce I actually quadrupled the batch and sealed them in canning jars. They turned out to be a great Father’s Day gift for my dad. I figured that it was about time to develop another recipe using the same base ingredients.
If there is one beer that screams summer, it would have to be Corona. This imported beer from Mexico is always a favourite on patios or during BBQs. It is only natural to make a sauce that has a Corona flavour and this recipe is easy to make and is perfect as a sauce, glaze or dip.
Lime is the common partner to Corona and it works great in this sauce. The lime juice is used instead of vinegar to provide the acidic element in this BBQ sauce. It is possible to can this sauce in Mason jars. Use 500 ml jars and make sure that they are processed in a hot water bath for 20 minutes.
This sauce is great on chicken or steak. Brush some sauce on the meat during the last few minutes on the grill.
