Homemade Honey Chipotle BBQ Sauce

Homemade Honey Chipotle BBQ Sauce
Adapted from Crumb
Makes about 2 cups

4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 ½ cups ketchup
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup honey
4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons molasses
3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons onion powder
1 to 3 teaspoons chipotle powder (depending on how spicy you want it)
4 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 to 2 teaspoons cayenne
1 teaspoon dry mustard powder
Salt and pepper to taste

1. In a medium saucepan over medium high heat, sauté the garlic in the oil for about 30 seconds until fragrant and lightly browned. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring mixture to a simmer, and then reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes.
2. Remove from heat. Sauce should be thick and sticky. It will continue to thicken as it cools, so if sauce seems too thick, add a bit of water, a tablespoon at a time, until it reaches desired consistency. With a fine mesh strainer, strain sauce into a pint sized jar, discarding the garlic pieces. (Or you can use an immersion blender or food processor to puree the sauce until smooth before pouring into the jar.) Store in refrigerator.
