Blueberry Balsamic Barbecue Sauce

19 06 2010
I wanted to come up with a good recipe for Father’s Day using EVOO’s Wild Blueberry Balsamic Vinegar. I created this yummy barbecue sauce. This is not too sweet and would be great brushed on pork, chicken or swordfish. I would brush it on before grilling and add more just before serving.
I also used this in a chicken quesadilla with avocado and cheese and then served it topped with a blueberry salsa.

2 tsp olive oil or EVOO Chipotle Olive Oil

1/4 cup minced onion

1 tbsp minced fresh jalapeno

1/4 cup EVOO Wild Blueberry Balsamic Vinegar

1 – 2 tbsp agave or to taste

1/4 cup Ketchup

3 tbsp Dijon mustard

2 cups fresh blueberries

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and jalapeno and cook over moderate heat about 5 minutes. Add the ketchup, vinegar, agave, and mustard and simmer over low heat, stirring until thickened, about 10 minutes.

Puree the sauce in a blender until very smooth. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper. Serve at room temperature.
