BBQ is a Joy of the Summer Months

Dancing Poly BBQ Sauce makes everything taste great. Of course, it's smoky heat is wonderful on all slow smoked meats but I've even known people to toss some in their potato salad or even fry there bologna in it! However you use it, make plenty. This recipe doubles and even triples well and the sauce freezes well.

Yields 2-3 Pints

1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup molasses
1 head of garlic, broken into cloves, unpeeled
2 TB cumin seeds
3 TB coriander seeds
1 TB black peppercorns
8 dried chiles
2 bay leaves
3 TB tomato paste
2 28oz cans of whole tomatoes
½ cup distilled white vinegar
4 cups water
2 TB salt

In a large stock pot, over medium heat, combine honey, molasses, garlic, cumin, coriander, peppercorns, chiles and bay leaves
Cook 30-45 minutes, stirring often, until mixture becomes thick.
Add tomato paste and tomatoes
Cook 15 minutes more, breaking up tomatoes
Add vinegar, water and salt
Cook, uncovered, 2-4 hours, stirring occasionally
Let cool
Fish out large pieces of garlic peel
Puree and sieve
Final sauce should be thin and a bit watery, like a broth soup
