This sweet and tangy Peach Barbecue Sauce tastes like summer and is the perfect complement to your favorite chicken or pork grill recipe!
Peach Barbecue Sauce
Peach season starts in about a month here in Arizona and I am ready for their sweet, summery stickiness! The kids are having prom next month at the local peach farm and it has been dreaming of sunny mornings and picking fresh ripe fruit of recipes like my Peach Barbecue Chicken Pizza!
Even though it’s early for the season some fresh peaches are starting to pop up in whole foods stores so I made a batch of Peach Barbecue Sauce to hold us over until May.
Don’t let the seasons keep you from enjoying this yummy sauce, you can easily sub in frozen peaches in the sauce. And I didn’t peel the fresh peaches, just puree them skins and all!
Lots of black pepper, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce balances out the sweetness of the peaches. I added a healthy dash of cayenne pepper too for kick, but as always adjust for personal preferences!
