You can find us every Saturday at the Carmel Farmers Market (8-11:30 a.m.) and the Fishers Farmers Market (8 a.m.-noon) through the end of September (with the only exception, the Fishers Farmers Market will be closed on 6/29 for the SPARK! festival)

Sweet and Sour BBQ Sauce

While it can certainly be enjoyed year-round, BBQ typically reminds me of summertime and I think we could all use a little glimpse of the warmer temperatures that are sure to come.  This recipe was shared with me by a friend who was serving up a BBQ sampler platter last week.  While they were planning to use the sauce on spare ribs and pork shoulder, I think it would also be tasty on grilled chicken or even baked on top of meatloaf. 

Ingredients (will yield enough to be used with ~5 lbs spare ribs)
  • 1 1/2 c ketchup
  • 1 1/2 c water
  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1 TBSP soy sauce
  • 1 TBSP lemon juice
  • 3/4 c pineapple juice
Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized saucepan; bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
