Ronda's BBQ Sauce

Why buy it when you can make it? Ok we were out of BBQ sauce a few days ago, so instead of running to the grocery store to buy a bottle, I made a batch of Ronda's homemade B-B-Q sauce. Let me tell you, it is yummy! The only thing I changed was that I used 1/2 T. onion powder and 1/2 T. garlic powder.

Ronda's BBQ Sauce
2 T. canola oil
1/2 T. onion powder
1/2 T. garlic powder
1 (6 oz) can tomato paste and mix with 6 oz of water
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup molasses
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup Worcestershire
2 T. prepared mustard
Dash of salt
Dash of pepper

In a 2-quart saucepan and heat oil. Add all of the other ingredients & stir well. Simmer over medium-low heat for 15 minutes. The mixture will thicken up some, but it won't be as thick as commercial barbecue sauce.

To thicken BBQ Sauce - Mix 1/3-cup water & 4 tsp cornstarch together and add during the last five minutes of simmering. This will thicken the sauce quiet well.
Pour sauce into a wide mouth quart size jar. Keep refrigerated.
