  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion, garlic, and ginger until onion is softened, about 8 minutes. Add blueberries, maple syrup, cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, molasses, lemon juice, cinnamon, cumin, chili powder, paprika, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper; stir to combine. Simmer over medium-low heat until sauce is slightly reduced and bubbling, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Remove skillet from heat; cool slightly. Pour sauce into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth.

I didn't put in the full onion amount because we don't like heavy onion taste...but that could have made a difference with making it taste more like bbq sauce, because it was very mild in that regard. Still very good though. Will make again and play around with the ingredients.

Excellent on pork chops! This is a really tasty barbeque sauce, but burns easily so delay brushing on meat until 1-2 minutes prior to turning or removing from grill. I used 1/2 cup brown sugar in place of maple syrup because I didn't have any. I also used white pepper because I love it. I ended up with a deliciously thick amazing sauce.



This sounded like the perfect way to use some extra bluedberries, but this sauce tastes neither like blueberries nor bbq sauce. We tried it plain as a dipping sauce, baked onto chicken and fish (it was best on chicken) and while we love all the ingrediants it just didn't live up to the flavor profile I thought it would have
