Spicy Peach BBQ Sauce

Category : Sauce/Marinade

Having bought a case of California peaches and enjoying fruit so perfectly ripe that I had to eat them over the sink for all their delicious juices, I wanted to experiment with the flavor. The local farmer’s market supplied me additional flavor components. My husband does not care for eating raw fruit, much to my chagrin. When he came home from work the day I made this sauce, he remarked how delicious it smelled. I put some chicken on the grill and did a final baste with this BBQ sauce and waited for his reaction. His reaction is what all cooks dream of, and he didn’t even flinch when I told him the base was my beloved ripe peaches!

3 large very ripe peaches peeled & chopped (make sure they are very flavorful)
1 small Onion chopped (I used a Vadalia)
2 Hungarian Yellow Peppers seeded & chopped (leave the veins in for more heat, can substitute jalapenos)
3 cloves Garlic chopped fine
2 cups Ketchup
1 cup Chardonnay
1/4 cup Cider Vinegar
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
2 T Light Soy Sauce
1 T Worcestershire Sauce
1 t fresh ground Cinnamon
1/8 t ground Clove
1/8 t Chipotle powder
1/8 t Habenaro powder

Combine all ingredients in a large sauce pan. Bring ingredients to a boil, then simmer until onions and peaches are very soft, approximately 20 minutes. Let cook slightly, then use either a stick blender or food processor to blend all ingredients until mostly smooth.
