I am still canning all those apples we bought back a few months ago. Who knew life would be so crazy the last few months? I’ve hardly had more than one day a week (if that, some weeks) to work on the canning. Thankfully I only have about 5 bushels of apples left and seven pumpkins left that need preserving.

So, since we have enough apple sauce and apple butter to last us a few years, I was racking my brain trying to come up with a new recipe for the apples. I get bored easily.

This original recipe is what I came up with:

Apple BBQ Sauce for Canning

  • 8 cups applesauce
  • 6 cups brown sugar
  • 32 oz. tomato sauce (or two 15 oz. cans)
  • 1 1/2 cups vinegar
  • 4 tsp. salt
  • 4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 3 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. liquid smoke
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. black pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves

Mix all ingredients together in a large stock pot. Bring to a boil, simmer for 1 1/2 – 2 hours or until thickened. It smells wonderful!

Fill sterilized pint jars with the hot BBQ sauce, leaving 1/2 inch head space. Process 20 minutes in a hot water bath. Be sure to add five minutes for each 1000 feet elevation. I have to process mine for 25 minutes because we live at about 1600 feet.

Yield: 6 – 7 pints
