Mock Ridgewood Barbecue Sauce

Author John Shelton Reed provided this recipe, devised by the women of Kingsport, Tenn., his hometown. It is based on the barbecue sauce that is served at the Ridgewood in Piney Flats, Tenn. According to Reed, "This is what ketchup will taste like in heaven."

  • 1 24-ounces bottle Heinz ketchup
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 tablespoon mustard (we used Heinz spicy brown)
  • 1 tablespoon Tabasco
  • 1 tablespoon browning and seasoning sauce (we didn't add this)
  • 1 large garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper

Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Pour into a heavy medium nonalumium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring often, 20 minutes. Makes 4 cups.
