Blueberry Barbeque Sauce

Blueberry Barbeque Sauce

by Nicole on July 31, 2012

To round out the recipes for “Blueberry Month” I decided to do something a little savory.  I had also never made a barbeque sauce so what better time than now? :)  I liked the unique element that the blueberries added to this dish.  My one complaint was that the recipe called for a bit too much vinegar for  my taste (I don’t care for too tangy a flavor in my bbq).  I would reduce it if you feel the same.  It paired nicely with the chicken but I could see it going well with pork or fish as well.  Enjoy!
