Mom's Barbecue Sauce

How do you tell if a recipe is good?

Well, if you're looking thru one of Mom's cookbooks, you can usually tell the good recipes by the stains on the pages. Mom believed in cooking all over the kitchen and all over the cookbook. This is a picture from an old cookbook I started as a child. As you can see, I am my Mother's daughter!

Mom's Barbecue Sauce can be used for Southern Style Ribs or homemade Sloppy Joe's. She used it to make homemade barbecue or pulled pork sandwiches. Click here for the Southern Style Ribs recipe on Simple Cookery. For the ribs, I doubled the recipe.

Mom's Barbecue Sauce
1/2 cup canola oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3/4 cup catsup
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup lemon juice
3 Tablespoons sugar
3 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons prepared mustard
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Cook onion in oil until tender over medium heat, but not brown. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.

I have several recipes left to me by Great Aunts and Grandmas and the best ones are always spattered and stained! I enjoyed the blog.
