A last-minute decision turned out to be a real winner for Caroline Hall of Medford, Massachusetts. "Three days before the deadline for entering recipes at the local fair," she relates,"I decided to see if I could make this barbecue sauce. My family loved the recipe I created—and so did the judges. They gave it a blue ribbon! We now use the sauce on my pork and potatoes all the time."—Caroline Hall, Medford, Massachusetts

Yield: 8 servings (5 cups sauce).
