A sweet and spicy pineapple BBQ sauce that tastes just like the Trader Joe's version; tangy sweet and fruity all in one.



3/4 cup pineapple juice

1/4 cup diced pineapple

1/2 cup white vinegar

1/2 cup molasses

1/4 cup tomato paste

1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder

3/4 teaspoon onion powder

3/4 chili powder

1/8 teaspoon white pepper

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

  2. Let mixture cool and blend until combined.


Make the day before to enjoy with deeper flavors.
