Wild Blackberry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce!

If you are looking for a unique blackberry recipe that is not jam or jelly, this one may be for you!  It's a great way to use an abundance of blackberries.

Wild Blackberry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce


4 quarts blackberries (16 cups)
3 onions, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped garlic or 1 head of garlic, chopped
3 tablespoons chipotle peppers in adobe sauce, chopped
1 1/4 cups red wine vinegar
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups white sugar
1 can tomato paste
2 tablespoons dried mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried ginger


Add all ingredients to a large crock pot and mix.  Cook on low for 5 hours.  At the end, either blend in the blender or use a stick blender.  You will see seeds floating in the sauce.

Strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a pot.  You may need to scrape the strainer with a spoon to dislodge seeds so liquid can go through.  Strain several cups at a time and rinse off strainer between strains to make it easier.

Bring sauce to a boil on stove and turn off.  Ladle into prepared jars leaving a 1 inch head space.  Wipe rims using a paper towel with water and vinegar on it.  Seal.  Water bath for 20 minutes.

Makes about 6 pints, or 12 half pints.

Goes great on pork ribs!
