It is so easy to make a barbecue sauce at home, so leave whatever prepackaged varieties you may have in your fridge for emergencies and make this one at home if you have a few minutes. This sauce works beautifully on the grill with anything from chicken thighs to thick slices of zucchini or cauliflower steaks. Heat up that Char-Broil grill and get cooking outside this summer.
Heat canola oil in a large pan over medium-high heat, add onions and garlic and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add in diced apple, reduce heat to medium and continue to cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add remaining ingredients and stir until the brown sugar has dissolved.
Once the mixture comes to a boil, reduce to low heat and let simmer, uncovered, for 25 minutes.
Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Place contents of pan in a blender and puree until smooth.
Transfer to container and refrigerate. Will keep for up to a week
