It’s August, which means it’s National Peach Month! Last week, we featured a brown sugar peach angel food cake for the latest Gluten-Free Ratio Rally. This week, we’re offering up a lemon-peach barbeque sauce. (No promise that we’ll do even more peaches next week, though…)
Like our Island BBQ Sauce, which features pineapple and guava, our lemon-peach barbeque sauce features a blend of acidic and fruity ingredients (lemon and peach, respectively, in this case) to create a seasonal, bright, well-balanced bbq sauce that’s very versatile.
Nothing says “summer” like grilling/barbeque and peaches. Even better when they come as a combo package.
Lemon-Peach Barbeque Sauce
1/2 cup peach juice (such as Ceres)
1/3 cup ketchup
1 1/2 tbsp molasses
1 1/2 tbsp light brown sugar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
juice of 1 lemon
splash tamari wheat-free soy sauce (or gluten-free soy sauce)
dash black pepper
1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk to mix well.
2. Use about 2/3 of the sauce to marinade your chosen protein and brush while grilling.
3. With the remaining 1/3 sauce, bring to a boil and reduce until thickened to desired consistency. Serve the sauce on the side or over your cooked protein.
