Dave’s Thick & Tangy BBQ Sauce – v1.0

8 ounces tomato sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup tamarind concentrate (not paste)
2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 molasses, mild un-sulphured
2 tablespoons secret seasonings (flake salt, sugar, black pepper, paprika, ground nutmeg, sage, cayenne and red pepper)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic, granulated

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer and cook until mixture is reduced by a third (20 minutes or so). Makes just shy of 2 cups.

Dave’s notes – good dark, sweet, tangy, spicy. Needs more nutmeg/allspice. Sauce is too dark, maybe try a syrup instead or molasses.
