Sweet Advice

  • If you’re really pushed for time, a store-bought BBQ sauce can be used as the base. Simply make it more complex and tangy by adding: Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, soy sauce, Jack Daniels.
  • Gift idea: Double the recipe and use the extra jars for hostess gifts, rather than the usual bottle of wine
