Blackberry Sauce for BBQ'd Ribs submitted by Mom Johnson
BBQ your favorite spareribs - slather with this glaze and top with additional fresh berries and fresh mint! (I usually double this recipe.)

In a food processor or blender, whirl the berries, catsup, honey, brown sugar, ginger, salt and pepper. Whirl until the berries are pureed. Add 1-2 tsp. hot sauce to taste. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and microwave at full power, stirring occasionally until berry mixture is reduced to 1 1/3 cups, about 8 minutes. (Or cook on stovetop until reduced.) Makes about 1 1/3 cups.

v 1 1/4 cups rinsed blackberries
v 1/4 cup catsup
v 1/4 cup honey
v 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
v 1/4 cup minced fresh ginger (or use chopped candied ginger)
v 1 tsp. freshly ground pepper
v 1/2 tsp. salt
v 1-2 tsp. hot sauce to taste
