Zesty Peach Barbecue Sauce

Posted by Food_Lover none (My Page) on

Hello Folks, I would like to try the recipe below. I know that some ingredients are for flavor, density, and pH. I was wondering if someone could let me know which ingredients could be modified and which cannot. My main concern are the following two ingredients because I do not have them:
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons hot pepper flakes
What, if anything, can I substitute for these? I do have ground cayenne, but how much would give a comparable flavor? Another question I have is whether all the honey is necessary? There are many peaches, so it should be pretty sweet already. Can I reduce the amount of honey (or subsistute another ingredient) or does it need to stay the same?

Also, is there a good BBQ or other tasty sauce canning recipe that includes tomatoes that someone could share?

You can sub out the dried peppers, just start with 1 tea taste then add from there. As for the W sauce; leave it out and can on.. will not loose much from of the original recipe but canning with what you have will be yummy, too.

I am canning up the same recipe today but I'm using Nectarines and Apricots.

RE: Zesty Peach Barbecue Sauce

As a general guide it is best to just not make recipes that you don't have the ingredients for as the results will vary greatly and it usually ends up being a waste of food and time. But it is your choice.

In this case the W-sauce and pepper flakes are just flavoring ingredients and can be left out or reduced. No sub for the W-sauce as it is a unique flavor but you can sub some cayenne pepper if you wish - amt. is just "to taste" but go easy as it will get stronger while stored.

The honey can be reduced but there is no way to know how doing so (plus the other changes) will affect the flavor. With all the changes it isn't going to taste like a Bar B Q sauce IMO. More like a peach glaze sauce.
