At your next backyard barbecue, incorporate the sweet and sour flavor of fresh blackberries with this seasonal condiment. Use the sauce as a dip or marinade or to baste slow-cooked meats or veggies.
Ingredients: 
  • 1 tablespoon expeller-pressed canola oil
  • 1 sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 pints fresh blackberries, roughly chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup no-salt-added crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon powdered mustard
  • 2 teaspoons fine sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
Method: 
Heat oil in a medium saucepan. Cook onion over low heat until translucent, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant. Add blackberries and cook until berries begin to break down, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients and 1 cup water. Simmer over low heat for 30 minutes to fully develop the flavors.

Allow barbecue sauce to cool completely. Purée sauce using a blender if a smoother sauce is desired. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
