How long will homemade BBQ sauce last in the fridge?
I have had store bought stuff in the fridge for close to a year. Will homemade sauce last as long in a sealed container?
Since it may depend on what it's made from here's my recipe.
1 cup blueberries
1 cup red wine
3 cloves garlic
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup stone ground mustard
1 tsp tomato paste
Ancho chili powder
Chipotle chili powder
Saute the onions and garlic. Add tomato paste. Add the blueberries cook for a few minutes. Add the wine. Cook down till it gets thick. Add vinegar, catsup and mustard and spices. Cook until it's done.
We've made BBQ sauce with strawberries, and it's lasted a couple of months in the fridge. I would simmer for at least 15 minutes or so after bringing it to a gentle boil, but as long as there's enough salt and acid in there, you should be fine for far longer than 2 weeks.
