Honey.. it’s a home made BBQ Sauce

Hiver also do a honey brown ale (4.5%) made with raw blossom & heather honeys to complement the darker roasted malts. In  a moment of taste2taste inspiration I decided to create a home made BBQ sauce.


small red onion, peeled & roughly chopped, 1 large fresh red chilli top removed, 2 cloves garlic peeled,  few sprigs fresh thyme leaves only, 1 bayleaf, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice, 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 2 teaspoons sweet smoked paprika, 100 ml (1/2 cup) Hiver honey ale (or other brown ale), 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar, 600g (21oz) tin chopped tomatoes, 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt & pepper.

Chop the onion, chilli & garlic finely in a food processor till use have a fine paste.

Add this to a pan with olive oil and cook gently for 5 minutes until the onion is soft.

Add the other ingredients and simmer gently for at least 30 minutes.If you want a thicker sauce just cook for longer! Remove the bayleaf & use.

It’s ready honey!

Great with lamb koftas, burgers, chargrilled aubergine anything BBQ.
