Barbecue Sauce

Barbecuing this weekend? Reduce the sugar in your sauce by using Kidsweet™!

 

Barbecue Sauce

Barbecue Sauce

Barbecue sauce, whether for dipping or for making up a mean batch of pulled pork is a sweet favorite. This recipe isn't sugar free, but it's seriously reduced sugar. A commercial barbecue sauce will run about 12g of sugar per 2Tbsp serving and many of the homemade recipes online start with ketchup (essentially a sugar sauce) and then have you add cups more sugar! Kidsweet™ Barbecue Sauce starts with plain tomato paste and has 2.5g of sugar per 2Tbsp serving. And let's not kid ourselves – who is going to use only 2Tbsp of barbecue sauce? Don't forget to make a batch of Kidsweet™ cole slaw, which goes great with everything barbecue.
