Zesty Peach Barbecue Sauce


Preserving Method: Water Bath Canning

  1. PREPARE boiling water canner. Heat jars in simmering water until ready for use. Do not boil.  Wash lids in warm soapy water and set bands aside.
  2. COMBINE all ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently, until mixture thickens to the consistency of a thin commercial barbeque sauce, about 25 minutes. If desired, puree in batches in a food processor or use an immersion blender to help break down the peaches. 
  3. LADLE hot sauce into hot jars leaving 1/2 inch headspace. Remove air bubbles. Wipe rim. Center hot lid on jar. Apply band and adjust until fit is fingertip tight. Place jar in boiling water canner. Repeat until jars are full. 
  4. PROCESS  for 15 minutes, adjusting for altitude. Turn off heat; remove lid and let jars stand for 5 minutes. Remove jars and cool. Check lids for seal after 24 hours. Lid should not flex up and down when center is pressed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flavor Looked very pretty. I did not puree. We like spicy food so I used 1/2 cup bell pepper and 1/2 cup jallpenos chopped. It was delicious but not hot enough. Next time I will use 1 cup jalapenos! Thanks for the recipe.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eating it as a snack. I made vanilla bean peach jam, but has so many peaches left, I decided to give this a try. It's WONDERFUL! I love it so much that I often take a jar and leave in the fridge to occasionally snack on it a few spoonfuls at a time. It's SO tasty and really good on pork chops!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good I made this a couple weeks ago and it's delicious. I have used it for chicken and sea food. Its also great as a snack. I topped some ritz crackers with cream cheese and the peach sauce and it tastes really good. Question: How long will an opened can of zesty peach BBQ sauce last in the fridge?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice for gifting I've made this sauce for several years now. Everyone loves it. It makes a great gift for that "I don't know what to get you foodie person in your life" since it's not something you can run out and buy. Try it over meatballs for a killer appetizer or ribs in the crock pot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious!! Worth learning to can just for this! I followed others and puréed everything right after I put it in a pot and then let it cook down as directed. The first batch I loved but it was too spicy for my mom in law..I made a second batch with 1/4 t. pepper flakes. So good I ended up using all of my peaches making extra batches. It's hard to describe how tasty this recipe is..I've never tasted anything quite like it - it's worth learning how to can just to make this recipe. From a canning skills perspective, no special tools needed and water bath is easy, just use your pasta pot and follow the times listed. Yum, enjoy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zesty peach bbq sauce I decided to purée red bell pepper, peaches and onion in the food processor first then add with the rest of the ingredients and cook as directed. I also used a garlic press for the garlic. I think it tastes yummy and not hot at all!(and I'm a mild kinda girl). Im not really a bbq sauce fan but like this because it is sweet and fruity. I am going to put it over cream cheese with crackers today for the Fourth of July party! I got 9 jars instead of eight. Thanks for the recipe!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal taste! I've made this this two years in a row now and plan on making it for many more. If you're skeptical about a fruit based BBQ sauce, don't be - it's sooo good! I replaced the honey with molasses for a more traditional BBQ Sauce flavor and it definitely delivered a better, more complex taste. Delicious on vegetables and over rice or quinoa!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very interesting sauce I would say this is more like a sweet and sour type sauce than a bbq sauce. After tasting it as written I decided to add another 1/4 cup vinegar and 1 tsp liquid smoke. We prefer more vinegary sauces to sweet. To make this smooth I pureed it with an immersion blender. This made 9 pints which I think was because of the extra vinegar and the fact I didn't cook this down very much as it was fairly thick after blending it. We had it on bbq chicken for dinner and it was pretty good. I think it would be very good for chinese food type dishes as a dipping sauce or for sweet and sour stir fry type stuff. Overall this was a good use for some of our many peaches
