Spicy Cherry BBQ Sauce

This is an easy barbecue sauce that will add a kick to your meat. I put this over some simply seasoned chicken breast and grilled it.

Spicy Cherry BBQ Sauce
1 cup of fresh, pitted cherries
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp agave nectar (optional)
1/2 shallot
Liberal seasonings: red pepper flakes, granulated onion, granulated garlic, paprika, chile powder, dried oregano, pepper, sea salt
Small pinch of ground cloves, ground cinnamon

In a medium saucepan combine cherries, water and shallots. Bring to a boil.



Reduce. Pour mixture into a blender. Blend until smooth. Return to saucepan.


Place over low heat. Add cider vinegar, agave, herbs, and seasonings.

Remove from heat.


Set aside or use immediately.



I brushed mine over chicken while grilling.
