We were having our annual Blueberry and Bluegrass Day at the New Bern/Craven Co. Area Farmers Market. Looking at the recipe I thought, "We have all these items at the market and Downtown New Bern." So I adjusted the recipe to reflect what our vendors had. I made a batch for tasting and had a very good response from customers. Here it is.....
New Bern Farmers Markets Blueberry BBQ Sauce
This is our version of the recipe on the Got to be NC website.
2c NC Blueberries (from one of our vendors)
1c Taylors Southern Pride BBQ Sauce (vendor)
½ c Balsamic Vinegar Traditional (MidTown Olive Oil Shop Downtown)
Fresh Thyme (from vendor)
½ c honey (from our vendors)
Put the blueberries, BBQ sauce, vinegar and thyme into heavy bottomed sauce pot. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to slow boil, stirring frequently. Cook until the berries have popped and the sauce has cooked down and thickened. Remove woody thyme twigs. Whisk in honey
My thoughts are that this recipe could reflect anyone's hometown.
