    • 1/8 cup soy sauce
    • 2 tbsp honey
    • 1 tbsp fish sauce
    • 1 tsp pepper
    • 1 clove garlic
    • 1 tsp onion powder
    • 1/2 tsp chili powder
    • 1/4 tsp cinnamon or ground clove
    • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
    • Juice from 1/2 lime

    Recipe: Whisky Peach Homemade BBQ Sauce
    Summary: Makes 1 Pint

    • 1 Tablespoon Butter
    • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar (divided)
    • 1 Large Peach (sliced thin, pit removed)
    • 2 Tablespoons Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate
    • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
    • 1/4 Cup Whisky (I used rye whisky)
    • 3/4 Cup Ketchup
    • 1 Teaspoon Hot Paprika
    1. Add the butter to a large saute pan and heat over medium high heat.
    2. Once the butter is almost melted add in half of the brown sugar and the peaches.
    3. Stir the mixture and as the peaches begin to slightly soften (about 3-4 minutes) add in the orange juice concentrate and stir.
    4. Let the mixture cook and gently mash the peaches as they cook. Continue to stir so that nothing burns.
    5. Once you see the mixture slowly bubbling (because the sugar has melted and begun to caramelize) add the vanilla and CAREFULLY add in the whisky. You may want to turn the burner off before adding the alcohol so that you don’t spill any and cause a flare up. Then turn the burner back on.
    6. Continue to cook and stir until everything has thickened up and the peaches are very soft.
    7. Remove the pan from the heat.
    8. In a medium sized, heat resistant bowl, mix the ketchup, the remaining sugar and hot paprika together.
    9. Once blended, pour in the peach mixture.
    10. Stir to combine.
    11. You can leave the bbq sauce chunky or you can use a stick blender, or regular blender, to make it smooth.
    12. Use immediately or store in a covered container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
    Quick notes
    For the pork loin, I added 5 cloves of minced garlic, some freshly ground pepper and a bit of kosher salt to the barbecue sauce. I then rubbed it all over the pork loin and baked it in the oven.

    If you don’t have hot paprika, you could use a dash of cayenne pepper and regular, or smoked, paprika.

    I would add anchovy juice to the Worcestershire sauce and go very light on the soy.
    Well, I'm a guy, and soy isn't a friend to testosterone. But, it's fine for the ladies.

    Spicy Mustard

    1/2 tsp. anise seed (I use star anise)
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    8 tsp. mustard seeds
    1/4 cup vinegar
    1/4 cup honey

    Grind the spices and mustard seeds in a mortar and pestle or coffee mill. Add the vinegar. Stir. Let sit for about 1/2 hour for the spices to rehydrate a bit. Add the honey to thicken. Adjust the consistency with vinegar.

    Try it you'll like it.... incidentally the recipe is from 1545....

    BUTTER (ok not really but really really close and you don't need to refrigerate it)

    ¼ cup Coconut Oil
    ¼ cup Pine nuts
    1 Tbsp Nutritional yeast
    ½ tsp Salt

    Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Transfer to a container. This vegan butter will be soft left out at room temperature and hard when refrigerated, similar to dairy butter.

    This is the Raw Vegan Butter recipe pdf that should have been attached.
