  • 1 ½ cups ketchup
  • 1 cup apple juice
  • cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 medium jalapeno finely diced (seeds removed if you want mild sauce)


  • Make the sauce. In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients and whisk to combine. Cook over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 25 minutes.
  • Use or store. Remove the sauce from the heat and allow it to cool. Transfer the sauce to a lidded jar and chill in the refrigerator overnight before using. This sauce will last 2 weeks in the fridge if stored in an airtight container.
