Apple Butter BBQ Sauce

This oh-so-flavorful condiment can be stored in a sealed jar for up to a month … but since you use it up long before that, double the recipe! Pop a tray of shrimp skewers under the broiler, or perhaps swordfish steaks or chicken thighs, and finish with a generous slathering of Apple Butter BBQ Sauce, built around Kime’s Cider Mill apple butter. It’s also a lovely thing to add to a lunchtime ham sandwich or to use as a dip for crunchy corn chips at snack time.

Apple Butter BBQ Sauce Recipe


1/2 cup Kime’s Apple Butter, sweetened with honey
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup yellow mustard
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp hot sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar


Add all ingredients to a pot and simmer until thick and coats the back of a spoon. Store in a Mason jar for up to one month.
