Home Made BBQ Sauce with the Help of Kristian Regale

When I was still single, I never liked cooking.  My Mom wold always told me that  my husband would leave me if  I don't start   learning  to love cooking.  So when I met my husband and he proposed to me, I got worried and told him that I don't know how to cook!  I  mean I can cook some stuff but  not much.  MY husband  said, it's not a problem at all so I said, okay!  In fact one of my best friends told my husband (boyfriend then) that the only menu I know how to cook is  noodles lol.  I am glad he did not get discouraged hahaha.
But anyway, I was given an  opportunity to try four bottles of Kristian Regále  sparkling beverages.  I think I am becoming   a fan of Swedish products.  First I love the clogs that was made in Sweden and now these  beverages are just my kind of thing.  They sent me four flavors,  peach, apple, pomegranate-apple, and the black currant.
I was more drawn to the black currant  as it is not the typical flavor that you always encounter in a beverage.  Well, maybe it is, I just do not notice as I seldom buy  juice like these.  As part of the  agreement that  we have, I have to come up with a recipe/s using these beverages.  Reading   the features   of black currant, I learned that it is tart and stringent.  So I thought of  creating a BBQ sauce using the  black currant juice as the base in making the sauce.  Here's what  came up with:

1 1/2 cup of KR black currant juice.
1/2 cup of  ketchup for color
1/2 teaspoon of Golden Nugget Garlic
1/3 cornstarch for thickening agent
1/4 cup of brown sugar
Salt and Pepper to taste

1.  Pour the  Black Currant juice in a skillet and let it simmer in a medium heat.
2.  Add the brown sugar.  When the sugar has dissolved, add the the ketchup, followed by the corn starch.
3.  Add the remaining ingredients for added flavor.

Oh my, I tell you, the astringency of the black currant create a very unique flavor to the sauce I just created.  I am  pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

I made some pork BBQ on a stick to try the sauce.  Here's the procedure.

1. Pre-cooked   the  pork  by  boiling  water and  adding a  pork cube in it.  (I used the  1 lb. stew meat so I don't have to  slice them up). 
2.  When the meat is  done, I put them in  skewers.
3.  Coated it with the Black Currant BBQ sauce using a brush.
4.  Bake it for ten minutes  at a 350 degreee heat in the oven.
5.  When done baking, add a cherry tomato at every tip of the skewers.

Bonappetit!  My husband and kids love the BBQ!  MY husband  even compared the sauce to  the  BBQ sauce that we normally buy from the store.  Hooray, my experimentation in the kitchen has  paid off!

We ate our BBQ  with rice and steamed beans from my garden and  fermented cabbage or kimchee for me.
You can check them out through the link I have provided above or you can LIKE their Facebook page.  Thank you so much Kristian Regale for the opportunity of working with you and trying your light and crisp tastes sparkling juice beverages.  Love them!  I will be exploring the other flavor next time so tune in.
