TSweet & Spicy Apple BBQ Saucehis amazing Sweet & Spicy Apple BBQ Sauce is a great addition to BBQ’s or even just to add to a normal meal you might cooking in the kitchen for the family.  Here is a recipe for three different sauces you can also try.  Matching sauces with main dinner proteins is a bit like matching wines with food, you have to practice to get it right.

Sweet & Spicy Apple BBQ sauce recipe


  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons hot chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeno powder
  • 1 tablespoon celery seed (ground)
  • 2 cups unpacked brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon ginger (ground)
  • 2 tablespoons dill seeds (ground)
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon salt


1. In a large saucepan, mix together your ingredients.

2. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes.

Cool before serving.

Sauces can be made in bulk and frozen, its a simple and easy way to add a little bit of flavour to any proteins, like chicken or steak.  You can always explore sauces more with a recipe book like Sauces: Classical and Contemporary Sauce Making.  It doesn’t take much to whip up your favourite sauce and it to a weekday meal either.
