Tuesdays At The Table - Apple Barbeque Sauce

Happy Tuesday!  I hope you all got to enjoy a nice long weekend.  :-)  I had to work on Columbus Day - but at least the commute was short and the day went quickly.

Last weekend I went apple picking.  It was fabulous!  Now I have 22 pounds (SERIOUSLY) of apples to use...and need some creative ways to use them.

Lovely Yellow Ribbons

Apple Barbeque Sauce

1 cup ketchup
2/3 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1/2 cup apple sauce or  apple cider
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/8 cup soy sauce
1/8 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons mustard powder
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/3 cup bacon, chopped finely
1/3 cup peeled and grated apple
1/3 cup grated onion

Mix together the ketchup, rice vinegar, apple sauce or cider, cider vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic powder, pepper, cayenne, and bacon bits in a large saucepan.

Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in apple, onion, and bell pepper. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, 10 to 15 minutes or until it thickens slightly. Stir it often.

Allow to cool and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.

What's cooking in your kitchen?


  1. This sounds marvelous! I can only imagine how delicious it must be.

  2. I have to try this recipe now. I was at an apple orchard 2 weeks ago and tried the free sample of apple bbq sauce and to my surprise, it was sooo good. thanks for posting!!!

  3. That sounds AMAZING! Thanks for the book suggestions too :)

  4. That sounds really good--I've never had apple barbeque sauce before!

  5. What a great sauce on some pork.... it will turn out to be a classic combination, I'm sure of it! Thanks for hosting!

  6. I posted a pumpkin spice bagel recipe that's really good. I did the whole apple picking making tons of apple stuff a few weeks ago. If you're interested check out my blog for a few other ideas. Homemade applesauce was the best!

  7. Apple picking sounds like so much fun. I've gotta suggest caramel apples OR caramelIZED apples only because I'm addicted to caramel!

    Thanks for hosting.


  8. I'll have to try that apple bbq, it looks good! I just made an awesome crockpot applesauce with 5 lbs. of apples. It was delicious. Apple butter is good too.

  9. This sounds delicious!! I really shouldn't read this stuff when I'm hungry...

  10. Like you, I had a lot of apples that needed to be used. So, I made homemade applesauce (this is the recipe I linked up). But, your apple barbecue sauce sounds incredible. I would love to try it on chicken (or for that matter on anything else).

  11. Twenty two pounds of apples! Wow you've got more than I do! I made my best apple pie ever (according to my family) on the weekend, but it wasn't beautiful enough to photograph so I'm going to have to try again. Instead I've posted a delicious chicken and almond couscous recipe! Thanks for hosting.

  12. Your Sauce recipe looks wonderful. I will sure give it a try.
    Thank you for sharing and thank you for hosting!

  13. This is my first time linking, thanks for hosting.

  14. this sounds great!

  15. I've never tried making my own bbq sauce...this looks super tasty!

  16. I will be trying this one out for sure!! Great recipe!

  17. Oh, this sounds like some great BBQ sauce! Thanks for sharing!

  18. Wow that sounds great. I can imagine all the things you can put it on :)

  19. very cool idea - I'll bet it has a wonderfully unique sweet flavor to it! - www.delightfulcountrycookin.com

  20. Wow! I've never considered adding apples to bbq sauce... I bet they add some special zip to it. Will have to try next time I make some sauce!

  21. Just found you via Brenda over at Brenda's Canadian Kitchen! Linked up my pumpkin cake; I'm following you and will definitely be back to link up in the future.

  22. Found a link to your site at One Crazy Cookie. I linked up my recipe this week...Whole Wheat Blueberry Banana Muffins. Thanks for the link! :)
