Mom’s Barbecue Sauce Recipe


This is a standard index card, and that’s my Mom’s handwriting.  There’s nothing on the back.

Barbecue Sauce

Blend 3 tbsp. ketchup, 3 tbsp. vinegar, 2 tbsp. dry mustard, 2 tbsp. worcestershire sauce, one bouillon cube dissolved in 1/2 cup boiling water. Salt to taste. Boil up once. 1934

I don’t ever recall her actually making this, but, since it doesn’t have any heavy sugar, I may try it.  I assume it’s beef bouillon.
IMHO, today’s commercial barbecue sauce is often just spicy syrup (as most peanut butters are actually peanut candy).  Blah.
