My husband is completely obsessed with barbecue sauce, he literally puts it on everything! Even after I put BBQ sauce on something, he adds more.  So, I knew he was going to love this recipe, especially since he’s a huge fan of guava.  This recipe is so delish, I keep it on hand at all times! It’s very simple to put together, and you can double or even triple the recipe and freeze the leftover sauce for long term storage.  My tropical guava barbecue sauce goes great on any grilled meat, but I’ve also been known to eat it by the spoon, right out of the jar. Trust me, it’s that good!

ingredients2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup guava jelly
1 small onion, diced
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 garlic clove minced
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons mango rum
1 tablespoon honey or agave
salt and pepper, to taste

directions

In a sauce pan, heat the olive oil on medium heat, then add the onions.  Saute the onions for 4-5 minutes, until they’re tender and translucent, but not browned.

Add the garlic and tomato paste, then cook for 1 minute.

Add the rest of the ingredients, and cook on low until the guava jelly melts and the sauce thickens, about 10-15 minutes.

 Strain the sauce through a fine mesh strainer, and discard the cooked onions.

Place the strained sauce into a mason jar for storage, this stuff keeps for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
