Getting Dad Sauced

Because you love him.

We love our dads, but they’re sorta the hardest guys to shop for.  They’ve got what they need {L: a closet full of the same polos. K: every NY Giants game ever played on DVD} and don’t really care to clutter with much more.  So what to do?

Well, here’s what to do if your pops happens to be a grill master extraordinaire {and you want him to be just a wee bit healthier}:

Super Good BBQ Sauce

1 sweet yellow onion
2 tbsp olive oil
6 Sweet piquanté peppers {from South Africa, sometimes called peppadews}
2/3 c organic ketchup {homemade if you can swing it}
1 tsp red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp chili powder {use your favorite}
1 açai {Sambazon unsweetened smoothie pack}

In a sauté pan, you’re going to cook down the onions in oil.

When they’re translucent, add the açai.

Add the other ingredients and stir so it all becomes one.

Makes about enough for one of those small half-pint mason jars.
