Guest Post: Tide & Thyme | Blueberry Chipotle BBQ Sauce

May 28, 2014

Hi there! I’m Laura from over at Tide & Thyme, and I’m excited to share a delicious blueberry recipe with you that is just perfect for all your summer cookout needs this season! Unlike many homemade BBQ sauces, it comes together in just a few minutes with basic ingredients. But with the addition of plenty of fresh blueberries, packs a punch of unexpected sweetness and gorgeous purple hue. It’s wonderful brushed onto grilled chicken, pork, or beef.

I love using blueberries for all kinds of recipes in the summertime, whether for something savory like this application – or something sweet like a traditional blueberry pie. But they’re also great mixed in with a bit of Greek yogurt with some honey for a light and easy breakfast, muddled up with some mint into a cocktail or a glass of water in the evening, or just healthy snacking in general.

We always spend a ton of time at the beach in the summer, and berries are always great for to-go type food situations. And so much  healthier than a bag of chips for hungry little ones. They’re always on my grocery list in the summertime. And, being in a small town it’s great to get a quality berry like Naturipe right in my local market. They offer all my favorite varieties of berries – blackberries, strawberries, blackberries, and of course blueberries. Naturipe Berries are sold across the U.S. and can be found in many stores – click here to view what grocery stores carry these delicious bites

 

So, make up a batch of this awesome sauce to bring to your next cookout – and get ready to look like a rock star at the party. Folks are always so impressed that you made your own barbecue sauce, and it’s something that really couldn’t be easier. You could also easily substitute raspberries or blackberries in place of the blueberries for a new and fun twist. Click here to view my Blueberry Chipotle BBQ Sauce

 

I hope you guys enjoy this recipe as much as my family did. Definitely a keeper for the recipe box!
