This week’s nasty food is gross and disgusting bottled bbq sauce. It’s amazing how many barbecue sauces are out there. So many varieties! So many processed ingredients! I do not purchase these so it’s always a surprise to go down this aisle in the grocery store and see just how large the condiment section is! I know it’s convenient but there are extremely unhealthy ingredients in bottled bbq sauce. One particularly awful ingredient found in almost all barbecue sauces is high fructose corn syrup . It’s the second ingredient in the one pictured above! Here’s an article which highlights the dangers of high fructose corn syrup.
What are the alternatives? Making your own! I promise once you taste homemade bbq sauce you will never go back to the bottled stuff ever again. Here’s my recipe for delicious bbq sauce. Try it on chicken, kebobs, hamburgers, or anything else you can think of. The really great thing about this sauce is that there are absolutely no processed ingredients and the only sweetener in it is pure maple syrup. Enjoy!
