Jalapeno Cherry BBQ Sauce I love taking my family to Cherry Days every summer. It’s one of my favorite things about living in North Ogden! I also love my giant cherry tree that gives us thousands of cherries every year. My Jalapeno Cherry BBQ sauce is a delicious, unique way to use them! Dark sweet cherries add the perfect natural sweetness to this easy, homemade sauce. 12 oz (or 1 ½ cups) fresh or frozen dark sweet cherries, pitted and roughly chopped 2 Tbls. butter 1 medium onion, chopped 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 ½ c. ketchup 1/4 c. apple cider vinegar 3 Tbls. brown sugar 2 Tbls. Worcestershire sauce 2 tsp. liquid smoke 2 tsp. ground mustard Salt and pepper Heat a large saucepan to medium-high and add butter. Add onions and jalapeno and cook until soft and browned. Turn heat down to medium and add garlic. Cook about 1 minute then add remaining ingredients. Simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes. Carefully transfer to a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. Makes about 3 cups. Freezes well if needed.
