  1. This bbq sauce was perfect on the beef ribs I cooked for my husband's birthday. They were sweet tangy and had a kick of spice at the end. I added a little more cayenne pepper and seedless blackberry jam because as written it had a little too much ketchup for my taste. Also used white - Read more ...
  2. HI EVERYONE! YES THIS IS MY RECIPE BUT I FOUND IF YOU DO NOT LIKE THE SEEDS SIEVE THEM OUT OF THE JAM OR USE JELLY PRESERVES. EVERY SUMMER I MAKE MY OWN PRESERVES USING LOW SUGAR AND MORE FRUIT. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT SOME JAMS OR JELLYS MAY NOT BE AS FRUITY AS HOME MADE - Read more ...
  3. there was no taste of Blackberry till I ended up adding 3 jars of it. This site is bad about reviewers giving 3 stars and still saying they don't like it. Call it what it is people!!! This is "no" BBQ Sauce.

  5. Being from Memphis BBQ sauce is a big deal. This is better than the best restaurants in town. I recently used this sauce in a Sunday School BBQ contest and it was the hands down favorite. The blackberry really gives it a great flavor.

  8. Similair to my Blackberry Barbecue sauce except I use blackberry Jelly ( no seeds) double all the amount add 2 tablespoons of celery seeds and cook it 8-10 hours in a crockpot and store it in the fridge for future use. Excellent!
  9. We loved this! I marinated the chicken overnight in a McCormick's Mesquite marinade. We had this for a large group for July 4th and everybody loved it. More like a treat than a main course!!!
