Matt’s Mop Slop
By the time Matt arrived home from work today I had our fourth bbq sauce ready for him to experiment with. He’s been saying that he wants to make his own bbq sauce but it takes time to prepare and thicken so I had it to a point where he could just add his special ingredients and continue to reduce.
Firstly, I took the tomato sauce (that had already been through the food mill) added onions, celery and a bit of red pepper to the mix and boiled until the veggies were soft. Then I put it through the blender (magic bullet) to puree. We really need a hand blender that can be dipped into the pots for this kind of job…but that will come.
Then, Matt took over. Adding a little of this and a little of that. I was surprised at all of the different things he threw into the pot but in the end it turned out great. I think experimenting with bbq sauce is a great way to try out a wide variety of different ingredients. I am going to keep this recipe under wraps to encourage you to try your hand at it but I will say that he added maple syrup (that we made this spring), Kozlik mustard, and rum. Go figure!!
