Jamaican hot chocolate pepper
Apple Cider vinegar benefits

Homemade Barbecue sauce- Jamaican style

BBQ sauce

My homemade Jamaican spicy  barbecue sauce is sweet (but not oversweet) and spicy. Molasses, Worcestershire sauce, tomato ketchup, brown sugar, soy sauce, and apple cider vinegar are the key ingredients.

-4 cup water
-1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
-4 tbsp. dark thick soy sauce
-1 cup ketchup
-2 tbsp. dark molasses
-1/2 cup Apple cider vinegar
-Pinch of salt
1/2 cup brown sugar

Here is where the Jamaican comes in--spicy; If you don't want spicy, skip these ingredients or you can substitute the Jamaican hot chocolate pepper with red pepper flakes or 1/2 tsp. cayenne
1/2 of 1 medium onion, minced
1 small Jamaican hot chocolate pepper, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
The hot chocolate pepper that I used is not very hot because it is not fully matured.
-Combine all ingredients in a medium pot on medium heat. Stir well. Bring mixture to a boil. Add a dash of salt (the salt will offset the sweetness a bit)
-Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Adjust seasoning to taste.
-Use barbecue sauce as a basting sauce for chicken or pork. Barbecue sauce will keep for several weeks in an airtight jar in the refrigerator
