    Scotch Barbecue Sauce

    2 tbs minced garlic

    1/4 cup fresh diced onion

    1 tbs ground chili pepper (Choose type for desired heat level)

    1/4 cup water

    1/4 cup diced green chilies

    2 cups ketchup (I make my own)

    1/2 cup molasses

    1/3 cup scotch

    1/4 cup brown mustard

    2 tbs Worcestershire sauce

    Sweat the garlic and onion in a sauce pan, with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. When done, add remaining ingredients to sauce pan and bring to a boil. Turn down to a low simmer and cook until desired thickness, stirring to keep it from scorching.

    If you want it tangier, add 1/4 cup wine vinegar. If you want it sweeter, add 1/3 cup brown sugar.

    Homemade Ketchup

    2-6 oz. cans of tomato paste

    1/2 cup brown sugar

    1/2 tsp mustard powder

    1/2 tsp sea salt

    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

    1/8 tsp ground cloves

    1/8 tsp allspice

    1/2 tsp ground cayenne

    1/2 tsp smoked paprika

    2/3 cup water

    4 tbs white wine vinegar

    Mix it all together thoroughly. You want to make sure the sugar dissolves, so I dissolve it in the water and vinegar, and then add the rest of the stuff. When it’s all mixed, jar it and let it sit in the fridge for a week or so to let the flavors meld.

    That’s it, folks.

    Oh, and if it's too sweet, you can always cut down on the brown sugar.
