It's no ketchup, but barbecue sauce is a pretty popular condiment on its own. While you can buy it by the bottle on the same aisle as ketchup, making your own is simple -- plus, you can customize it to your tastes. Ketchup makes a good base for a sweet and savory barbecue sauce that you can use on everything from chicken nuggets to ribs.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder or dried onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • dash of cayenne pepper (or to taste)

Directions:

Whisk all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. This sauce tastes better if you allow it to sit refrigerated for a few hours so the flavors can blend. Taste and adjust the seasonings as you like. Store covered in the refrigerator.
