Date & Peanut Barbecue Sauce

Prep time:  10 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes
Yield: 1 cup


  • 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup Dateables Date & Peanut Spread
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke


  1. Heat a saucepan over medium low heat.
  2. Add all ingredients, stir to combine, and bring to a low simmer for 5 minutes. You don’t want it to boil, just get warmed through. Heating will allow the date spread to soften and the flavors to combine.
  3. Transfer the barbecue sauce to a blender or food processor and blend on high for 2 minutes. (Be careful when blending warm liquids)
  4. Store in an airtight container or wide mouth Mason jar. The sauce will keep refrigerated for at least 2 weeks or frozen for 1 year.
