Thanksgiving Cranberry Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Top Secret BBQ Sauce Recipe

Thanksgiving wouldn't be the same without Turkey, and turkey wouldn't be the same without cranberry sauce so for all you BBQ aficionados out there, here's my take on cranberry barbecue sauce. It's got that all important sweet and sour that you'd expect in any barbecue sauce and then add the fruity cranberries over the top........need I say more?

Apart from the flavor, what's really great about this sauce is that you can make it in advance, get it done the week before Thanksgiving and pop it in the refrigerator so it's out of the way and you can concentrate on the bird on the big day.

Having said that, this sauce is great on any poultry and you can also use it as a glaze during the final 15 minutes of the cookout. So now there's no excuse for not using this sauce all year round and certainly no excuse for not knowing how to use any that's leftover (you should be so lucky!).

It's really easy to make, just be careful when putting hot liquids in a food processor.

Yield:- 2 quarts or 2 litres

Preparation Time:- 20 minutes
Cooking Time:- 10 minutes

Total Time:- 30 minutes



What could be simpler than throw all the ingredients into a saucepan and bring it to the boil then simmer for 10 minutes?

Allow it to cool a little and then blitz it in a food processor (you may need to do it in batches). Now strain it through a sieve and that's it, job done.
