Low Sodium Barbecue Sauce

"Having to live the "low sodium" lifestyle can be boring and flavorless until you discover zingy items like this barbecue sauce. I found this on a low sodium recipe site and I've made it even lower in sodium by changing a few of the ingredients."

    This is a good recipe, however if you are taking certain medications , beware. The no-salt ketchup has potassium chloride in it, which should not be mixed with certain heart medications.

    I will say with some minor tweaks, really good! I used honey instead of molasses (didn't have molasses). That was good, but cut back slightly on the volume. I added a little cayenne pepper and some red pepper flakes to give it a kick...Tastes sweet at first, but the bite comes after a few seconds...great recipe!

    I made this tonight. My DH is on a low sodium diet and has been wanting barbecue pork. He loved this. I followed recipe except left out the liquid smoke.

    Fantastic base recipe. I added 1/4 tsp cumin, 1/4 tsp turmeric (I add it to everything for health benefits), and 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper. THEN, I added 1/2 cup Jim Beam Devil’s Cut Bourbon. It really added a great flavor. The alcohol cooks off so you can serve it to anyone. Thanks for sharing this recipe. My husband is in congestive heart failure at 54 years old so I’m constantly looking for yummy low sodium recipes.
