Who knew apricot jam made such a perfect BBQ sauce base? We especially recommend this recipe for pork ribs, but any meat will do.
1/2 cup apricot jam
1 medium-sized brown onion, grated
2 tbsp oil
1 cup apricot nectar
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp cider vinegar
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
10 drops tabasco sauce

If jam has large pieces of fruit, push through a sieve or puree in food processor; measure after pureeing.

In a saucepan, cook onion gently in oil for 5 minute. Add remaining ingredients, stirring often until jam has melted. Reduce heat and simmer gently for 10 minutes.

Use as a sauce to accompany pork, chicken, lamb or veal, or as a baste for these meats (thin down with a little water or apricot nectar if necessary). Sauce will keep for 2-3 weeks in a sealed jar in the refrigerator.

Serving size = 2 tablespoons

I've been making a very similar sauce for years, however, I leave chunks of apricots (or sometimes peaches). I love getting a bite of apricot along with the meat. This is a must-try recipe. You'll love it!
