HC Style Carolina Style Blue BBQ Sauce


HC Style Carolina Style Blue BBQ Sauce


  • Ingredients:
  •  7 cups blueberries
  •  1/2 cup dark muscovado sugar
  •  1 cup sherry vinegar
  •  1 cup red wine vinegar
  •  7 clove garlic minced
  •  1 lg sweet red onion sliced
  •  1 habanero pepper or 3 jalapenos
  •  1 dark beer I like a really deep Porter for this 12 oz can or bottle
  •  1 tablespoon ground coriander
  •  1 tablespoon ground cumin
  •  2 tablespoons ground espresso must NOT be instant
  •  1 tablespoon each ancho smoked paprika, and chipotle powder


  • Steps:
  • Mash blueberries with a potato masher (machine mashing makes a weird textured end product)
  • Add all the ingredients into a saucepan and cook at medium-low heat for two hours. It is going to reduce a lot over time and even start to boil near the end. I left it at the same temperature the entire time stirring about every twenty minutes for the first hour, every ten the second hour, and every minute for the last ten minutes.
  • After two hours pour the mixture into a food processor or blender and puree it.
  • Then strain (2 times please) the sauce and enjoy!
