Clean eating BBQ sauce

  • Cook 12 oz clean bacon (nitrate free) and save 3 pieces (you can eat the rest!) and remove about 2 spoonfuls of the grease (leave the rest)
  • 1 - 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 onion, minced
  • 1 6 - 7 oz jar (or can) of tomato paste 
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp molasses
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce (the cleaner the better)
  • .66 cup water 
  • .75 Tsp salt Salt
  • .75 Tsp pepper

After the bacon has been cooked and you've removed the two spoonfuls of grease, use the remaining grease to sautee the garlic and onion. 
Then add remaining ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes.
Turn the heat off and carefully use an immersion blender to make it smooth. If you don't have an immersion blender. Let the mixture cool and use a regular blender to combine into smooth sauce.

Keeps up to 2 weeks in the fridge. feel free to add some heat via hot sauce or peppers!
