Homemade BBQ Sauce

A year ago, I found the absolute perfect barbecue sauce recipe on the back of a molasses jar. Of course, I had to “fix” it a bit for our family. We eat a lot of barbecue sauce; it is Danny and Bella’s first choice when it comes to dip and sauce.

Homemade Barbecue Sauce

  1 c ketchup
 ¼ c vinegar
  2 t mustard (prepared, not powdered)
 ¼ c honey
 2 T molasses
  1 t garlic powder
Layer all ingredients in a pint jar. Screw on the lid tightly and hand off to your way-too-hyper three-year old. Tell them to shake it while hopping around the room.  Viola! Barbecue Sauce. For a spicier sauce, add 1 teaspoon-1 tablespoon of hot sauce. For a sweeter sauce, increase the honey to 1/2 cup. For a stronger sauce, increase the molasses to 1/4 cup. Enjoy on chicken, steak, roast, bread, or any other number of foods! I think Bella has dipped her cooked broccoli in it…
