How to make BBQ sauce

Step 1

Put all the ingredients into a large saucepan and heat until boiling, stirring to mix. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 1 hour, without a lid, until the sauce has reduced and thickened. Stir occasionally.

Step 2

While the sauce is cooking, sterilize 3 x 450g jars by washing them in hot soapy water, rinsing well, then placing them in a low oven at 150°C/Fan 130°C/Gas Mark 2 for 15 minutes.

Step 3

Check that the sauce is the right consistency – it needs to be quite thick (it will only thicken a little more as it cools). Pot the hot sauce into the hot jars, then seal and leave to cool.

Step 4

Store in a cool place for up to 3 months. Once opened, store in the fridge and use within 2 weeks.

How to thicken up BBQ sauce

For every 1 cup of BBQ sauce, mix a tablespoon of either flour or corn starch with a tablespoon of water until it has a good consistency and no lumps. Once you’ve worked out all the lumps, add the mixture to your BBQ sauce to help it achieve a thicker consistency.
