Reviews for Honey Barbecue Sauce
"I found a similar recipe in a cookbook given to me as a wedding gift from my mother-in-law over 40 years ago and it has been my go to BBQ sauce since with two exception: I use 1 cup of ketchup instead of the tomato sauce and omit the molasses and use 3 tbps honey. I have canned it in pint jars and given as gifts."
"Easy easy easy...I love the sweet, spicy, garlic flavor. I didn't have molasses so I used honey. I also added a few red pepper flakes and let it simmer. Delicious!"
"This was good, but not great. When I tasted it, it seemed to be somewhat bland. I added some onion powder, allspice, and a small amount of hot sauce. I also increased the chili powder. Next time I make this, I will try some different spices to give it a little more kick. I do appreciate that it started with tomato sauce instead of ketchup."
"I haven't made this yet; but looking forward to trying it. I love the fact this starts with tomato sauce not sodium laden ketchup which may or may not contain other ingredients like high fructose corn syrup."
