Strawberry-Chipotle BBQ Sauce

Summer is officially in full swing here on Delmarva. We spent all day at the beach on Sunday – then came home and fired up the grill. What speaks of summer more than that? I normally count on my good friend, Sweet Baby Ray to handle most of my BBQ needs. But, the DIYer in me won out, and I remembered the BBQ sauce that my friend Josie had posted a few weeks ago. I’d made the sauce before, and was blown away with the results. I love it because it’s super quick – requiring only a few ingredients, and doesn’t need to be cooked.

I decided to add some of the strawberry-chipotle jam I’d made to the sauce, to spice it up a bit. The sweetness of the strawberries and the smokiness of the chipotle really came out on the grill. We both kept raving about it!  Will definitely be making up more batches of this stuff all summer long, looking forward to trying a version with peach jam in a few weeks when I’m able to make some preserves with those juicy gems.

Summer is here, kids. Fire up those grills!

    Peach is awesome, I can imagine strawberry is just as good!
