Maple Peach Barbecue sauce is simple to make with ingredients already in your pantry. Packed with flavors of sweet with a kick of spice for the most delicious barbecue sauce recipe.
This recipe comes straight from our family farm kitchen. We were working on developing a maple barbecue sauce recipes to bottle and sell in the sugar house and developed a few different recipes.
If you’re familiar with water bath canning, you can certainly make a big batch and put up a few bottles of this sauce. We bottle it in barbecue sauce jars and stock our own pantry. A bottle of homemade barbecue sauce also makes a great gift. There’s really nothing better than something homemade with love! Feel free to use either fresh or frozen peaches. Most of the peaches dissolve while the sauce cooks and thickens. The smaller you cut the peaches, the more the fruit will dissolve.
Many times, I’ll purchase fruit or berries at the farmers market and process it immediately. Which means, placing berries in freezer style Ziploc bags and laying them flat in our upright freezer. With something like peaches, I’ll peel and slice them, then place in freezer zip-style bags. Those also get laid flat in the freezer.
