I started off with some ripe tomatoes from my garden, expecting to make Stewed Tomatoes...instead, they wanted to be Barbecue Sauce. This recipe packs some heat, but it's still sweet.

Ingredients

2 can(s)
stewed tomatoes
1 can(s)
chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
12
whole, dried cloves
3-4 tsp
cinnamon
1 Tbsp
nutmeg
1/2 tsp
allspice, ground or 4 whole
2-3 c
brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 c
blackstrap molasses or honey
2 tsp
onion powder

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Take the stewed tomatoes, and cook them down (over medium heat) until they release most of their liquid in a large sauce pan (or dutch oven), remove solids and return liquids to pan.
2
Add chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (if you prefer less heat in your sauce, use 1/4-1/2 can). Continue to simmer, adding spices.
3
Slowly add sugar and honey/molasses stirring occasionally.
4
Simmer sauce over low to medium heat for as long as necessary to thicken to a sauce, allowing extra liquids to cook off.
5
Store refrigerated until use.
