I'll have to try that recipe too. Thanks for the tip on the stevia. DH is totally hooked on stevia, me not so much. I'm seeing more products coming out with stevia, like Stonyfield organic yogurt which I buy once in a blue moon.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

Here's one from my collection that is pretty basic. You can substitute the brown sugar with a teaspoon or two of extra molasses plus a few drops of liquid stevia extract. With all the pungent flavors going on in this BBQ sauce you won't even notice the stevia (if you are one of those who doesn't like stevia), you will only get the sweetening benefit.

(by the way, many stevia products have been fabulously improved. I highly recommend Now Products "Better Stevia")

anyway, here's the recipe:


Classic BBQ Sauce
From: http://www.glutenfreeclub.com

Rich full bodied BBQ Sauce for all your grilling needs.

2 1/2 cups canned, diced tomatoes with juice
1 large onion, chopped
1 small can tomato paste
1/2 cup vinegar
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp molasses
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp mustard powder
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Saute the onion until it becomes soft.

Toss all ingredients into a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, then simmer uncovered for 3 to 3 1/2 hours on a low heat setting.

After it has cool, blend it in a food processor or a blender.

With a hand held blender there's no need to remove the contents from the pot. Just blend it in the pot.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

This is a very good recipe. It would even be better using a puree of fresh tomatoes (recipe follows ketchup recipe) I suggest substituting part or all of the sugar with liquid stevia extract.

Homemade Spicy Ketchup

2 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 28-oz can tomato purée
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp allspice
2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Heat oil in a pot over medium heat. Saute the onion until for 5 to 8 minutes until translucent. Add in the garlic and stir together. Add the tomato purée, brown sugar, vinegar, tomato paste, salt, mustard, cloves, allspice, red pepper flakes and cayenne pepper and stir to combine. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 45 to 60 minutes until it is thick like ketchup.
Using an immersion blender, food processor or blender, puree the mixture until smooth.
Adjust seasonings if needed and pour ketchup into a container and seal. Can be refrigerated for up to 1 month.
I got this from:

I have made the most delicious tomato puree from home-grown tomatoes this way:

Just puree the heck out of a bunch of tomatoes in your food processor. Put the mess in a heavy-bottomed pot and simmer it gently until it is reduced to about half its original volume (or as thick as you like). You can also run the pureed tomatoes through a loose sieve if you want it smoother but I never do that. I usually put a garlic clove and some basil into the processor with the tomatoes but this isn't necessary; just adds spunk. You can then freeze or can this tomato puree or use it right away to make pasta sauce or...ketchup!
