A barbecue sauce you can change up each time you make it
The ugly photo to the left? Yeah, I need to make some more barbecue sauce today.
Personally I’ve never been one for killer, blow-the-taste-buds-from-your-head hot sauce. I just don’t get why someone would do that. Humans have about 10,000 taste buds and they are replaced every two weeks or so, but for me it defies logic. My preference is toward a sweeter barbecue sauce with over and undertones of different flavors. We use this barbecue sauce just as it is but you can mix it up to your preference.
Humans experience five tastes sensations: sweet, sour, salt, bitter, and umami. This recipe allows you to play with some of these to suit your tastes. This barbecue sauce can be used as is or as a base. So If you want to blow the buds from your mouth just start adding hot stuff like chili peppers. Want some more sweetness? Add sugar or honey. Maybe switch the honey for maple syrup. How about adding some coffee or espresso? You get the idea. :: Follow Gromit for more
