BBQ Sauce Recipe

Since next week is July 4th, I just HAD to share my recipe for BBQ Sauce. A friend asked for the recipe and I promised. So, here it is.

 I make 4 times the recipe, put it in ketchup bottles and refrigerate. It will keep for 6 months or more. In my son's house, the kids call it "Daddy's Ketchup" because he uses it on everything! Make it as hot as you like by adding more red pepper. It's great on ribs, chicken or pork roast (or French fries....etc.....) It's an Alabama BBQ sauce, red and spicy sweet.

Alabama BBQ Sauce

1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons Worchestershire sauce

Simmer first 8 ingredients in a small pan for 20 minutes. Add ketchup and Worshestershire; bring to a boil. Remove from heat and cool. Store in refrigerator or use immediately.
