Really Amazing Rhubarb BBQ Sauce
Seasonal Fresh Rhubarb is blended in a tangy & zesty Barbecue Sauce!
An easy Sauce & Glaze – terrific using on the grill and as a side sauce.
A fruity Barbecue Sauce does not need to be loaded with sugar to be flavorful. Homemade is better ~ no unwanted preservatives and flavorings!
Wash and dry the rhubarb, slice 1/2 inch thick and set aside.
Add oil to a 8 inch skillet and set to medium-low heat.
Add shallots and sauté for 5 minutes until softened, but not colored, stirring from time to time. Add garlic, cloves, pepper, sugar and honey. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer; cook one minute.
Add tomatoes and their juice, chipotle, vinegar and dijon mustard – and cook 2 minutes to incorporate the flavors.
Add the cut rhubarb, raspberries and 1/4 cup water; bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer and cover. Cook until the rhubarb is softened – three minutes.
Uncover and cool 5 minutes. Add 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt and puree in a small 4 cup food processor. Puree as you like – very creamy or a little chunky.
The Rhubarb bbq sauce can be a base for richer sauces – try swirling cold butter into the warm sauce – or add zip to your vinaigrettes by adding a few tablespoons!
