This recipe is a "Keeper". It is nice to see a recipe for BBQ sauce that does not have a Ketchup base with its high sugar content. I plan, today, to make this recipe in a large quantity and store it in my fridge for use this summer. For persons with diabetes, the only item which might be suspect is the Tomato Sauce. Although there may not be sugar added to this product, by its very nature, there is occurring sugars, simply because it is "tomatoes". It is impossible to eliminate sugars completely from a diabetic diet; it just requires stricter monitoring. Thank you for this one, I plan to add it to my Cook Book and include it in my personal "Diabetic Ready-Reference-Recipes"

I made this yesterday to serve with roasted pork loin. It was a winner! My husband loved it. I did add 2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with water and cooked an additional few minutes to thicken.

I found the original recipe too vinegary, so I had to add a little bit of molasses, brown sugar and ketchup to make it taste better. I also added garlic, reduced it down a lot more and added corn starch to thicken it. It turned out well, and with a lot less sugar than a typical BBQ sauce. Would make a great marinade, too.
