Homemade barbecue sauce with fresh cherries for a tasty natural sweetness!
In a saucepan, add grapeseed oil and the chopped onion. Sauté until onion is translucent and turning brown, about 12-15 minutes. Add the garlic, sauté an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Add the cherries, mix into the garlic and onion and cover, allowing cherry juice to begin to leech out, about 3 minutes.
Uncover and add the crushed tomatoes, orange juice, ketchup, honey, apple cider vinegar, chili powder, ground red pepper, paprika and liquid smoke. Bring to a full boil and allow to bubble 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer the contents of the saucepan to an emulsion blender. Emulsify until very smooth.
Optional for a thicker sauce: Transfer the sauce back to the saucepan and simmer on medium-low for 30 to 40 minutes in order to thicken. The sauce should be barely bubbling and be sure to stir periodically. Allow sauce to cool before transferring it to a container. If need be, allow it to cool more in the container before refrigerating it.
Keep refrigerated for use for up to 1 week.
Even 87 year old Grandmas have tricks up their sleeve! After trying this jam for the first time and loving the “fresh” strawberry taste and perfect hint of rhubarb, I was in for a big surprise when she let me in on her secret ingredient!
