Berry BBQ Sauce

On weekends, I jazz up our favorite BBQ sauce with blackberries and blueberries. They make a marvelous spread for basting and saucing grilled baby back ribs. —Janet Hix, Austin, Texas

    I love this idea but people need to know your Nutrition facts are incorrect. They do not reflect the BBQ sauce.

    Wow! I made to use on a pork roast. A great consistency and not too sweet.

    I didn't have blackberries so I replaced with thawed, frozen rhubarb...I think you could use almost any fruit combo. Delish
