Cranberry BBQ Sauce



• 1 T vegetable oil
• 1 cup minced yellow onions
• 1 T minced garlic
• 1 tsp. dry mustard
• 1 tsp. chili powder
• 1 ½ T tomato paste
• ¼ cup cider vinegar
• 1 T dark molasses
• ¼-½ cup water, if needed


In a sauce pan, heat oil over medium-high heat; add onions and sauté 2 minutes. Mix in garlic, mustard and chili powder and continue cooking 1 minute. Stir in tomato paste and cook 1 more minute.

Add cranberry sauce, vinegar and molasses and bring to a simmer, whisking often until mixture becomes smooth. Lower heat and simmer 15-20 minutes or until mixture reduces and thickens. Add water to mixture if it gets too thick. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Place in a covered container and refrigerate until ready to use. Reheat before using.
