What does the inside of your refrigerator door look like? Does it have multiple shelves? Skinny shelves, perfect for housing bottles of this and that. If yours looks anything like mine, it is filled with jars that you bought to use for a recipe and now sit languishing on the shelves with an expiration date of two years ago.
When I had a craving for some barbecued chicken, I remembered that I had a bottle of barbecue sauce in the fridge. Yes. I did. It expired July 24, 2011. I remembered a photo of some barbecued chicken from Everyday Food: Great Food Fast. There I found a recipe for barbecue sauce with only 7 ingredients: hot sauce, cider vinegar, light brown sugar, molasses, Dijon mustard, and garlic cloves. Ingredients that I pretty much always have on hand.
Oh my. This was so good. So good that I have had it twice this past week. I still have a little of the sauce in a jar and a fridge, and will be finding something else to barbecue because I don’t want this to go to waste. If you currently always buy your barbecue sauce, please try this at least once. It is so good.
If you don’t have the cookbook that I mentioned above, you can find it online: Barbecued Chicken.
This will be my entry for Cookbook Sundays!
