This recipe is a winner for grilling season! This makes a great sauce for pork or chicken. I love the flavors of blackberry, fresh ginger, and freshly ground pepper all melded together. This recipe comes from my sister Jackie. She has put together an amazing cookbook, with pictures, and distributed it to many of her family and friends. Her cookbook is highly sought after; this recipe comes from her cookbook.
Mix the following in a blender:
1 cup ketchup
1 cup honey
1 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons powdered ginger
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
4 teaspoons freshly ground pepper -- Do not use ground pepper in a can.
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup frozen or fresh blackberries
Mix all ingredients in blender; pour sauce in a sauce pan and heat until warm throughout. Season grilling meat with a dry seasoning such as Montreal Steak seasoning. Place meat on hot grill and baste with blackberry sauce. When done on one side, turn over and baste on other side. Grill until done. Serve meat with extra sauce on the side. We like to use this sauce on pork loin chops.
Should your pepper mill be broken (mine is), you can grind up peppercorns somewhat successfully in your blender.
