Tangy Apricot Barbecue Sauce

This tangy-sweet barbecue sauce is just right for grilled chicken breasts, turkey burgers or salmon steaks. If you can’t find fresh apricots, substitute frozen apricots.

3 large apricots, pitted and chopped

1 medium yellow onion, chopped

3/4 cup (6 ounces) pineapple juice

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

4 cloves garlic, chopped

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

In a small saucepan over medium-high, combine all ingredients. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring often, until the onions are tender and the apricot chunks begin to break down, about 10 minutes Transfer to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Return to the saucepan and simmer over medium heat until reduced by a quarter. Transfer to a bowl and use immediately or cover and refrigerate up to a week. Makes 3 cups.
