Sweet and Tangy Barbecue Sauce
Simple Barbecue Sauce
½ - 1 tsp. chili powder (to taste)
Dash of salt
3 - 5 tbsp. cranberry (or any dark berry) jam
Place the ketchup in a pan and add the brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, chili powder, and salt. Bring to a simmer and continue to cook as it thickens and the sugar caramelizes a bit. Adjust the seasonings depending on your own taste, and then add the 5 tbsp. (or more!) of your favorite dark berry jam. Cranberry is especially recommended for this recipe, but any will work fine.
Pour over chicken breasts, sausage links, hot dogs, hamburgers, or meatballs. Enjoy!
