Another one to have handy by the grill or simply on the table. It is very easy to convert this recipe to "low sodium" by using no-salt-added ketchup, reduced-sodium chili sauce, and low-sodium Worcestershire sauce.
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 large apple, finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons anise seeds, crushed
- 1 teaspoon celery seed
- 1 tablespoon dry mustard
- 8 fluid ounces ketchup
- 8 fluid ounces bottled chili sauce
- 2 fluid ounces apple juice or 2 fluid ounces apple cider
- 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- In a medium saucepan, heat the oil, and cook the onion and apple over medium heat until they are softened, about 5 minutes.
- Add the anise seeds and cook, stirring for 1 minute.
- Add the celery seeds and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.
- Stir in the mustard, and then add the ketchup, chili sauce, apple juice, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and honey.
- Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until lightly thickened, about 15 minutes.
- Will last for several weeks refrigerated in airtight containers.
This was excellent. Different. Kind of a fruity Asian flavor. I used it on BBQ chicken and will try in on a pork loin next time. If u like sweet fruit marinades, this one is worth a try.
