Ojai Jelly BBQ Sauce

Tip (especially for you men out there that think you’re THE BBQ KING!)
I suggest that you try LOW & SLOW
Great things can’t be rushed! Take your time with low heat, & baste often.
It will come out more tender & delicious than ever!  You’ll love the input around the dinner table too!
Some meats (ribs) are great tenderized in pineapple juice overnight then BBQ’d with this sauce-


5 T. olive oil
1 small brown onion- chopped
7 large cloves of garlic, minced
2 cans (28 ounces each) “Organic Fire Roasted” crushed tomatoes
1 T. cayenne pepper
5 T. Worcestershire sauce
5 T. apple cider vinegar
1/2 c. unsulphured molasses
1/4-1/2 c. Ojai Jalapeño Jelly or Ojai Habanero Jelly
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper


In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat olive oil.
Add onion and garlic.
Cook, stirring, until onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.

Stir in all other ingredients & simmer until reduced by a third-
Stir occasionally. This will take about minutes.  Add salt & pepper to taste.

Working in batches, puree sauce in a blender.
Pour into jars & refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
