Farm Girl BBQ…

When Red Gold Tomatoes contacted me about using their tomatoes in some of my recipes (see post on Dec.30) they also sent me some of their wonderful ketchup.
I made ribs on New Years Day and needed some BBQ Sauce. So here is what I came up with using Red Gold Tomato Ketchup.
It was a success!  
BBQ Sauce
By The Gourmet Farm Girl
2 cups Red Gold Tomato Ketchup
1/4 cup canola oil
3 fresh green onions (finely chopped)  
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
2/3 cup water
2 Tablespoons chili powder
1 Tablespoons smoked paprika
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon smoked sea salt
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper
In a medium size sauce pan over medium heat add the ingredients listed one by one and stir continuously till blended. Cover and reduce to simmer; let cook for 20-30 minutes stirring on occasion.
Remove from heat and use as desired
Yields approx 3 cups
Note: Ribs were rubbed first in The Gourmet Farm Girl BBQ Rub; slow cooked then grilled with several coatings of BBQ Sauce.
