Applesauce Barbeque Sauce

Applesauce gives this apple BBQ sauce a nice thick texture that coats meats well. The sauce has a sweet-spicy flavor that is excellent on chicken or pork. It can also be canned in sterile containers for later use, or for giving as gifts.

You will need:

  • 1 cup applesauce
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • 2 cups unpacked brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon


In a saucepan over medium heat, mix applesauce, ketchup, brown sugar, lemon juice, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and cinnamon. Bring mixture to a boil.

Remove from heat, and cool completely, about 20 minutes. Use to baste the meat of your choice.
