Wow! I am really excited to find this recipe. I added the ingredients to my baked bean recipe in place of the BBQ sauce and everyone loved it! The only change I made was to use a bit less lemon juice. This is so much healthier with less sugar content than the regular stuff. I'm sure I will be using this often. Thanks for posting!

This was a SUPER BBQ sauce ! I subbed lime juice for the lemon, and doubled the tomato sauce as I needed alot of sauce, but it did not seem to detract from the flavors ~ tart, tangy, and a little spicy and very much kid-friendly too! Thanks for this super-easy recipe Paula, we loved it. Made for PARTYING THE DIABETIC WAY, January 2010!

Paula - this sauce was a winner in our house and so easy to make. I used it tonight with some left-over Slow Cooker Herb Pork Roast (#31161) that I shredded for sandwiches. I served with Coleslaw #47606 and some left-over pinto beans. Excellent recipe which I am moving to my "Tried and True" folder.
