This sweet sauce requires a bit more time commitment than your typical store-bought BBQ sauce, but the tangy result is more than worth it. Slather it on everything from grilled ribs to grilled tofu or spread it as a sauce on a homemade pizza crust. The possibilities are endless.


Select ingredients:


  1. Heat the oil in a pot over medium heat and add the onions and garlic, sautéing for a few minutes or until tender.
  2. While the onion cooks, add watermelon to a food processor or blender and puree. When the onions are done cooking, add the pureed melon and all remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
  3. Simmer for 30 minutes, then allow to cool slightly before transferring to a jar for serving or storage. If a smoother consistency is desired, use a food processor or blender to puree the sauce. Store in the refrigerator and enjoy!
