  • 1 cup frozen Marion berries or other Blackberries (or 1/2 pint fresh, rinsed, and drained)
3 cloves garlic peeled
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons corn syrup dark or light
  • 1/2 cup ketchup

  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes
3/4 teaspoon Pimenton de la Vera (see note)
3/4 teaspoon coarse salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons unsalted butter (optional)


  • Puree all the ingredients in a food processor. Transfer to a small saucepan and simmer for one hour, or until the sauce has thickened slightly. Let cool and store in a covered jar in the refrigerator for up to one month. 


Note: Pimenton de la Vera is smoked Spanish paprika. Find it at markets that carry a wide selection of gourmet foods. Also, look in the “Mexican foods” section of your local supermarket for a fine substitute, just look for “pimenton” on the paprika pack. Thanks to lotusfather for sharing this recipe.

    This sounds good! It would definitely be a break from regular barbeque sauce. I’ll try this next time we barbeque.
