Wow, I haven't it gotten this on the ribs yet and I keep eating it. Excellent sauce. The only change I had was to use pineapple preserves as I didn't have peach or apricot in the pantry. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

This is a great easy recipe. I like things hot though so added a lot more Tabasco and some red pepper flakes. Thanks!

This was good sauce. I didn't use preserves. Instead, I added maple syrup (I thought about trying honey next time). I will cut the vinegar in half next time too. Other than the vinegar being a bit too much for me, the sauce was great!!!!

I think I'm addicted! I made it to the letter, and glad I doubled it. Thank you for the recipe. It's a KEEPER. It is sooo easy to make, and all the ingredients are easily found right in your kitchen, nothing to shop for. I had apricot preserves from a christmas present but from now on it will be on hand also. My Dh bought barbecue sauce in a jar, which is unopened and will stay that way. This is Delicious! I made it for oven ribs also. YUM YUM YUM

Great BBQ sauce. I used this on my oven baked spareribs last night and it was a success! I did use Saucy Susan in place of the perserves (didn't have anything else on hand) which worked great. The sauce had a perfect balance of sweet and tang! I will definitely use this recipe again. Thanks for the winner!

Deliciously sweet with a leeeetle kick. Used on some boneless pork chops for a wonderful dinner. Good luck on the BBQ Sauce Contest, Bev.

I make ribs every Sunday during the warm weather months and experiment with sauces. I keep coming back to this one as really good when I am short on time. I have made it at least five times and used a different jelly or preserve each time. I love it with pepper jelly because we like spicy. I used up some habenjaro peach jam that I was given once as a gift. Wonderful! Thanks so much for this recipe, this is quicker than a trip to the store and so much better.

I've often used pepper jellies as a glaze on ribs, but now this is my rib glaze. Wow! Delicious. I followed the recipe fairly well and used peach preserves (I'm from Georgia, you know).

I used this on ribs. First used a "Famous Daves" rub and put it in the fridge for 2 hours then smoked and grilled the ribs. I put the sauce on last as a baste and then brushed it on liberally before serving. Everyone loved it. Next I try chicken as it was suggested the sweet sauce would be perfect on chicken.
