Canning BBQ Sauce

Hi there,

I'm thinking of making my own bbq sauce. In particular Blueberry Chipotle. When I get ready to can, should I treat it the same as making blueberry preserves?

Thanks,
Belinda

Good question. I don't know, but if you have freezer space, I would think you could freeze it. Zippies (stand up the bag in a yogurt container when you fill it, squeeze out as much air as possible, and put them on a cookie sheet so they freeze flat).

Thanks. Well...here's the story. <grin> I have 8 blueberries bushes and have picked and frozen over 30 pounds of berries from them and we are still picking. I was trying to work them out of the freezer and into the pantry.

Here is the USDA approved recipe for BBQ sauce. National Center for Home Food Preservation | How Do I? Can Tomatoes

Since blueberries can be waterbath canned, I would think that you could sub blueberries for the tomatoes, and you would still have a good acid product that you could waterbath can.

I would can it as per the instructions for canning the most sensitive ingredient..if peppers take the longest canning time then go with that, same for the canning method. That way you will be sure that everything has been canned so that it is safe.
