In my quest to quench my thirst for making everything from scratch, I decided to make barbecue sauce from scratch.
It was yummy and a breeze to make!
I really wanted to make the ketchup that goes into barbecue sauce from scratch, but I didn't have all of those ingredients, unfortunately!
...For another day!
