Grapefruit Orange Habanero BBQ Sauce
1 White Onion, diced
1 Grapefruit, separated into wedges and halved
2 Oranges, separated into wedges and halved
1 Lime, juiced
1 Habanero Pepper, minced
2/3c Tomato Sauce
3/4c White Sugar
3/4c Brown Sugar
Sounds fucking weird, right? I decided to take a gamble with this cockamamie harebrained idea and I’m glad I did because it turned out to be straight legit. I used the skeleton for my vinegar based BBQ sauce but replaced the vinegar with citric acid and added a buttload more sugar to cut the tartness. Here’s to having balls and creating new things.
Sautee the onion in some butter over medium-low heat until softened. Dump in the remaining ingredients, turn the heat up to medium, bring to a boil, turn it back down to medium-low, and simmer for a half hour or so. Use an immersion blender to puree it into oblivion.
“Is that a Pace salsa jar?” Yes it is. I’m glad you brought that up because it raises a subject I would like to discuss. Every drinking glass and storage glass I own is from a product I purchased. From huge pickle jars to little clam juice jars my cabinet is a hodgepodge of assorted glassware. I also save the lids for future storage. It’s too bad you bought all those crappy glasses at IKEA like a sucker.
