- 3 cloves fresh garlic, finely diced
- 6 oz can tomato paste (or passata)
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup prepared mustard

Instructions for Barbecue Sauce
Combine the drippings (or stock) and the diced garlic and simmer in a medium sauce pan for 5 minutes.

Add to your sausage tea and enjoy!
How long will barbecue sauce keep in the refrigerator?
The sauce will keep in an airtight jar for a maximum of two days in the fridge – although to be fair, this sauce tends to get eaten in one sitting at our house!
