Isn't it amazing how quickly we can flip from summer and over to autumn? And the flavors of fall are so wonderful - fresh apples, maple, pumpkin, and the rich and aromatic autumn spices - cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.
Tasty roasted apples and just a touch of maple syrup are the base of Roasted Apple & Maple Grille Sauce - the tangiest, sweetest grilling barbecue sauce and glaze you have ever tasted! Very similar to Stonewall Kitchen's Roasted Apple Grille Sauce - but even fresher and better when you make it yourself! This slightly sweet and tangy sauce is a family favorite - even my little ones love it!
Fresh apples and just a touch of maple syrup fuse into a divine marinade, barbeque sauce and glaze. Perfect for fall grilling!
Roasting the apples brings out the sweetest flavor naturally for this fantastic sauce, and the aroma while this cooks is out of this world!
This is very similar to Stonewall Kitchen's Roasted Apple Grille Sauce, but all the better when you make it fresh and flavorful at home! I love knowing exactly what ingredients are going into the foods I feed my family, and I really try to use seasonal fresh ingredients every chance I get.
As a marinade and barbeque sauce, this is perfect for pork tenderloin, ribs, chicken, and it is glorious as a glaze on ham! And to make something just a little bit more special during football season, I stir in a cup of this when making homemade baked beans. I like my barbeque sauces to be on the "sticky" side - and this apple and maple infused sauce will have you licking your fingers!
