Balsamic Barbeque Sauce

Giada's Balsamic Barbecue Sauce opened my eyes to the fact that you can make your own BBQ sauce and that it tastes amazing--way better than the bottled kind you can buy at the store.

This stuff is sweet and tangy and delicious. I LOVE balsamic vinegar!

Combine in a small nonreactive saucepan and whisk until smooth:

1 cup balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Simmer over medium heat until reduced by one third, 15-20 minutes.

Reserve some sauce for dipping.
Brush some BBQ sauce on chicken the last couple minutes of grilling/barbecuing.

Recipe from 'Giada's Kitchen'.
