What is in BBQ Sauce?
A perfect mix of sauces and spices (which you probably have in your fridge/cupboards) to create our very own Homemade BBQ Sauce which everyone loves! Good enough to bottle up and sell! We always have a jar of this handy in our fridge.
So easy to create!! Just chuck it all in and stir for occasionally for 15 mins.
We use our mango chutney in this BBQ sauce because it is the best! But if you haven't got time to make that first, just use shop-bought mango chutney. It adds a lovely sweet-spicy taste to the sauce.
Gia Garlic Puree – pick it up at any UK supermarket, save your time fiddling with peeling, chopping and pressing garlic. The tube keeps in the fridge for use whenever you make another dish containing garlic!
Gia Chilli Puree – available from most supermarkets, add it to any dish to add an instant kick. A little goes a long way, 1 tsp of puree, to give a little kick, feel free to not add it or add more!
It may seem too watery at the start but after 15 minutes it should have thickened up.
If not, feel free to add some cornflour (mixed with warm water) to it 1 teaspoon at a time, bring it to the boil whilst stirring and it will thicken up.
