This is our own recipe based loosely on the DYC vinegar recipe with some extra (not so) secret ingredients.
Lifeboat Farm BBQ Sauce
1 onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
2 big tablespoons of caramelised onions
1/4 cup malt vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
1 cup of tomato puree
1/4 cup of tomato paste
1/4 cup of finely chopped dates
1 teaspoon of mustard powder
salt and pepper to taste
In a heavy bottomed saucepan or frypan, cook the onion in the oil until translucent. Add all other ingredients and simmer, covered for about 30 minutes. Pour the mixture into a food processor and blend until smooth. Put into a sauce bottle and store in the fridge.
