Candied Jalapeno Apple BBQ Sauce

This sauce has everything... spiciness, sweetness, unique flavor and a nice tang!  I came up with this idea from watching a Smoky Ribs rib video.  The ribs looked so good I had to create an Candied Jalapeno BBQ sauce.  Here is my attempt.  It turned out really good and is excellent on pulled pork. 

As for the type of apples I used I am not really sure.  I know it was 3 different types (Gala, Ida Red and Crispin I think), 3 firm and slightly tart apples would be ideal.  I hope you give this BBQ sauce a try!


In a pot over medium heat add the oil, peppers and onions along with a big pinch of salt - cook until translucent.
Add the apples and brown sugar and cook until the apples soften a bit.

Add the candied jalapenos along with the brining liquid and all the other ingredients and bring to a simmer.  Cook for an hour, adding water if it seems too think.  Remember it will be much thicker after its blended and cooled. 

Let cool a bit and taste for seasoning - then blend.  Place a towel over the top blender if the sauce is still hot.  Pour into sterilized containers and store in the fridge or can the sauce.
