This is an amazing sweet/smoky, thickly rich BBQ sauce! This is great on any type food! Chicken, burgers, pork, turkey and makes a splendid addition into pork and beans! We love it on grilled ham & Swiss sandwiches too.

Apple Stand BBQ Sauce


  • 1-1/2 cups Our Family Garden, Cinnamon Applesauce
  • 1 can (6 ounce) tomato paste
  • 1 cup water
  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar (5%)
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 cup fresh yellow onion (diced)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh garlic (minced)
  • 1/2 cup jalapeno peppers (seeded & veined, then diced)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot Mexican chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Put all ingredients into a medium non-stick dutch oven or large pot.

Stir together, cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

Lower the heat so the mixture simmers for 20 minutes.

Remove the pot from the heat, puree the mixture in a blender or food processor until smooth.

Ready to use! Store any unused sauce in the refrigerator. Good for up to 2 weeks.
