BBQ Sauce - Mustard Maple

Mustard based sauces have a definite kick to them, and this one is no exception.  On the other hand, the pure Vermont maple syrup adds a sweetness and character that gives the sauce a great balance of savor, sweet and heat.
This sauce is delicious and really compliments pulled pork and ribs nicely. I usually double or triple the recipe and keep it stored in the refrigerator.

   1/2 cup yellow mustard
   1/2 cup Dijon mustard
   1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
   1/2 cup Vermont maple syrup
   1/4 cup brown sugar
   2 tablespoons butter
   1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
   1 tablespoon lemon juice
   1/2 teaspoon cayenne (use more only if you want a hotter sauce)

Mix all ingredients together and simmer over a low heat for 30 minutes.  The sauce will thicken during the cooking process.  Be sure to stir occasionally and strain the sauce after cooking to ensure a smooth consistency for serving. One recipe will make about 12 ounces of sauce.

    and it really shouldn’t be—IF you know what you want and where to get the best deal.
