4-Introduce the Raspberries: Gently fold in the fresh raspberries. Use the back of a spoon to lightly crush some of the raspberries, releasing their juices into the sauce. Simmer for an additional 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

5-Season and Spice: Sprinkle in the smoked paprika, onion powder, black pepper, and salt. Adjust the seasonings to your taste preference. Continue to simmer the sauce for an additional 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it thickens and the raspberries break down.

6-Blend and Strain: For a smoother texture, you can use an immersion blender to puree the sauce. Alternatively, if you prefer a chunkier sauce, you can skip this step. If desired, strain the sauce through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any seeds.

7-Final Touch: Allow the sauce to cool before transferring it to a jar or airtight container. Store it in the refrigerator for at least an hour before using to allow the flavors to fully develop.

The Raspberry BBQ Sauce opens up a world of culinary creativity. Use it as a marinade for chicken, pork, or even tofu before grilling. Baste your meats generously during cooking for an irresistible glaze. It can also double as a dipping sauce for appetizers like chicken wings or sweet potato fries.

In conclusion, the Raspberry BBQ Sauce is a delectable testament to the endless possibilities of culinary experimentation. With its unique blend of sweet and tangy flavours, this sauce is destined to become a staple in your grilling repertoire. Embrace the boldness of innovation and give your taste buds the adventure they deserve with this remarkable creation.
