Barbecue Sauce

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

We are in the midst of winter here in the north west of England, and it is cold! Really cold! But no snow though - yet. Summer is a distant memory for most at the moment so I thought I'd revive some of those long-lost days by posting a recipe for Homemade Barbecue Sauce. It's smoky, sweet, spicy all in one and just what we need to put some colour into these dull January days. I used mine to make BBQ Chicken Sandwiches - the recipe for which is coming soon! 
For the record, I have never been a fan of the barbecue sauce that you can get in the shops - I think it's way too strong and smoky. This homemade one is perfect and a real balance of all the flavours. Hope you like it!

A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Dijon Mustard
2. Worcestershire Sauce
3. Maple Syrup
4. Malt Vinegar
5. Red Chilli Powder
6. Brown Sugar
7. Vegetable Oil
8. Tomato Ketchup
9. Salt and Black Pepper
10. Smoked Paprika
11. Onion
12. Garlic
13. Paprika
14. Water
15. Paprika

Bismillah, let's begin!
