As with jams and salsas, I love experimenting with new BBQ sauces! In the summer and fall, I have so many fresh ingredients to use up! I don’t like the way peaches freeze. Having tried to freeze peaches on many occasions, with lots of different methods, I give up! They always brown. No matter what I do! Brown peaches are just not appetizing to me! So to preserve peaches, which I have an aboundance of, I make jam, different salsas and lots of BBQ sauce! All of the fruits I grow are organic. No fertilizers, herbicides or fungicides, so I feel like I am doing my family a great service, making delicious foods with them!

Making your own BBQ sauce couldn’t be easier! Literally just cut up the veges and add everything to a sauce pan. I cook it down for a few hours so that it gets nice and thick. Then just run an immersion through it or transfer it to a blender, in batches to make the sauce uniform. If it is not thick enough for your liking, just return it to the saucpan and cook on low until your desired thickness. I usually cook mine a good 3 hours because I like a nice, thick BBQ sauce that will really stick to the meat!

  • 12 cups peaches, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups chopped bell peppers, any color
  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup garlic, chopped
  • 2 cups cider vinegar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Wild Turkey Honey
  • 2 Tbsp Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Adobo Seasoning
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Sterilize jars in water bath canning pot for 10 minutes. Let them sit in hot water until ready to use.
  2. Heat bands and lids in simmering water. Do not boil. Let them sit in hot water until ready to use.

  3. Combine all ingredients in large pan. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and slow boil, stirring frequently, until it has thickened, about 2 hours (sometimes I will even go 3 hours). Use an immersion blender to make the sauce creamy. If you don’t have an immersion blender, transfer to a stand blender. If you think it could still be a little thicker, you can continue to cook until desired thickness, just make sure you turn the heat down and stir often.

  4. Fill hot jars leaving a half inch of head space. Wipe rims. Cover with hot lids and tighten bands fingertip tight.

  5. Process the jars of sauce for 15 minutes (adjust for altitude). Allow them to sit in the canning pot for 5 additional minutes. Remove jars and let them cool. Check lids to make sure they have sealed. (If they don’t pop when pressed in the middle of the lid, they are sealed). Any that don’t seal should be refrigerated.
