Here is How To Make Blueberry BBQ Sauce

Ingredient Notes & Substitutions

Blueberries. Fresh or frozen blueberries will work in this recipe. If you use frozen, thaw them out before cooking them with the ketchup and vinegar.

Ketchup. Any kind of ketchup can be used in this recipe, I prefer unsweetened ketchup, but it’s your choice.

Apple Cider Vinegar can be replaced with white vinegar or balsamic for a sweeter-tasting blueberry barbecue sauce.

Maple Syrup can be replaced with an equal amount of honey or brown rice syrup.

How to Store Blueberry Barbecue Sauce

Store blueberry BBQ sauce in the refrigerator in a jar or a glass food storage container for up to five days. I like to use these small mason jars.

Freezing is not recommended since we have not tried freezing it.

Recipe Variations

Change up the fruit Instead of blueberries, use 1 cup of fresh or frozen raspberries or blackberries.

Make it spicy and add a tablespoon of chipotle chile powder, chopped chili pepper.
