Peach Barbeque Sauce
I don't think anyone doesn't enjoy a really ripe, juicy peach. At this point in the summer though, some people are looking for more things to do with peaches (and all stone fruits) than just eating out of hand, which is why I started making this simple and amazing BBQ sauce...
Easy Peach Barbeque Sauce. My new addiction.
4 large, ripe peaches (or any stone fruit. If the peaches are not really juicy, add a few teaspoons of orange juice)
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar OR white vinegar
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 small chili pepper (I use a Thai birds-eye, but you can use any you like), seeds removed
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon orange zest (bright orange rind of the orange. Do not include the bitter, white pith just under the zest.)
Slice peaches. In a blender or food processor, blend until smooth with vinegar, tomato paste, chili, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and zest. Remove about 1/3 cup sauce to baste over flank steak or chicken for last few minutes barbecuing. Pass the reserved sauce at the table.
