Watermelon Homemade BBQ Sauce


Watermelon Homemade BBQ Sauce is a summer staple in my kitchen. I can’t count the number of batches I make of this each summer. It is the perfect sauce to marinate meat before cooking. I also use it as a BBQ dipping sauce. So many people ask me for the recipe when they taste it and I’m putting it here for you to try! 

It couldn’t be easier to make this sauce. Start by blending watermelon in a food processor or blender until you have a smooth puree. Bring the watermelon puree and the rest of the ingredients to a boil. Simmer until the sauce thickens. When it has cooled slightly. Taste it and adjust the seasoning. This sauce will keep for a few days in the refrigerator.

Not gonna lie when I first saw this I honestly thought it'd taste awful because I never even thought that you could make a bbq sauce out of watermelon..but it's sooo good when blended all together all the taste mix well and it turns out to be a sweet honey type bbq.

Fantastic and scrumptious bbq sauce i even added a little bit of red chili flakes to give it a bit of a kick.

Uniquely made and creative would rate it higher if i could.

Go easy on the soy sauce, 1tbsp is enough or there will be too much sodium and you can get heartburn

There's so much going on in this and it taste kinda sweet too but id say its worth it since it goes super well with chicken.


Little on the salty side but tasted amazing, dipped my french fries in it :)
