“The flavor of this sauce is amazing. No more buying jars of salty, high fructose corn syrup BBQ sauces! Take the extra time and make your own. This recipe comes from Veganomicon. The original recipe called for whole apricots, but I've also made this using 1/2 - 3/4 cup apricot preserves or fruit spread, and saved a couple steps. Great over baked tofu, tempeh or seitan strips.”
