Tangy Peach Barbecue Sauce

Tangy Peach Barbecue Sauce recipe by Barefeet In The KitchenThis is a tangy barbecue sauce with a subtle peach flavor that turned out to be a great variation on one of our favorite dinners. Despite the fact that half of this recipe is purely peaches, the flavor remains in the background. The peaches are there, adding something special to the sauce, without turning this into a fruit sauce or a chutney. I used this sauce to make BBQ Chicken Stuffed Potatoes and they disappeared in minutes.

I have about half a jar of this sauce left in the refrigerator and I'm already wondering if I'll be able to get my hands on any more peaches before their season is completely done.

Spicy Peach Barbecue Sauce
Yield: about 3 cups
(printable recipe)

2 cups peach puree, I used 5 large peaches
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Peel the peaches and puree in a blender until mostly smooth. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and use immediately or let cool and store in the refrigerator until needed. Enjoy!

  1. I love pork and peaches - this would be wonderful over some pork chops!

  2. This would even perk up the plain sausage on the BBQ. A little different to the usual chutney.

  3. Wow, this looks so good Mary! I'm imagining it on grilled chicken and pork tenderloin. I was thinking if you couldn't get peaches, I bet roasted pears would be incredible in here alos.

  4. I'm definitely getting a grilled ham vibe in addition to pork and chicken! :)

  5. Love the smokey, sweet, tangy thing going on in this!

  6. I have been playing with peaches too. This sounds fabulous and I think I could just eat it with a spoon!

  7. How long can you keep this sauce? Will it stay good indefinitely in the fridge?

    1. I'd be fine with it for a week or two. We typically use it pretty quickly though!
