You can’t have a summer barbeque without the right sauce to go with it! A good BBQ sauce brings warm weather and backyard fun to mind, no matter what time of year you enjoy it. There are as wide a range of flavors of BBQ sauce as there are ways to use it – but nothing beats a homemade sauce filled with fresh ingredients! Mix up this Plumsicle™ BBQ Sauce and give a sweet new taste to a classic flavor.

How to Make Plumsicle BBQ Sauce

Sure, you can buy all kinds of BBQ sauce varieties in the store. But you won’t get the exact flavor you’re looking for unless you make it yourself! Fortunately, this cookout essential is easy to make in your own kitchen – and Plumsicle BBQ Sauce is no exception.

Easy to store in jars

Featuring deliciously sweet Plumsicle plums along with garlic, red pepper, and other flavorful ingredients, this BBQ sauce is a treat for the taste buds. Ketchup and brown sugar provide a simple base for this sauce, but it’s the Plumsicles that give it a standout flavor.

Plumsicle BBQ Sauce starts in the blender. Chop the plums into smaller, blendable pieces and add them to your food processor or blender along with the rest of the ingredients. Homemade BBQ sauce has a bit more texture than the typical store-bought variety, but your blender will make it smooth enough to slather on ribs, burgers, or pizza. Then just reduce it on the stove, store it in a container (we used a canning jar), and serve it with your favorite summer dish!
