Apricot Barbecue Sauce

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 tablespoons oil
- 1 cup apricot nectar
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 10 drops Tabasco sauce
If the jam has large pieces of fruit, push through a sieve or puree in a food processor; measure after pureeing.
In a saucepan, cook the onion gently in the oil for 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, stirring often until the jam has melted. Reduce the 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.
