"Clean" Sweet & Tangy BBQ Sauce

Now that the summer is in full-effect, there are TONS of pool parties and Barbecues taking place here in sunny California!  And with Barbecues, comes the demand for BBQ sauce!!!!  If you're like me, and trying to eat much cleaner, then you'll know what I mean when I say that a good "clean" BBQ Sauce is slim pickins!  It's very hard to find a delicious sauce made with natural ingredients (i.e. none of that high fructose corn syrup or other corn syrup derivatives junk).  So, in an effort to avoid the "sugar crack", I have created my own sauce!!!  Yes... you heard (or read) me right! This amazingly delicious concoction of all natural ingredients will have you begging, no - SCREAMING for more!  Put it on your pizza, use it on your grilled chicken/steak/shrimp, dip your nuggets in it, hell - you can even add it to a little homemade Ranch dressing & drizzle this sucker on your salad!  The possibilities with this sauce are truly ENDLESS!

Don't believe me, it's sooooo simple to make, so whip up a batch & test it out for yourself!  I'll even let you tell your family that it was alllll your idea! ;-) #yourewelcome
