I was going through some papers in my office today (of which they are way too many…papers, not offices) and found a note from my Amish friend in the settlement of Inola, Oklahoma.  I had read the note a month or so ago but inadvertently overlooked a recipe she included to share with all of you. Oklahoma is barbecue country and the Amish there definitely get it on the sweet/tangy delicacy.  This sounds like a good recipe, although it is very sparse on instructions. I am typing it in below just as she wrote it, so you may have to experiment with the particulars of the instructions!


4 cups catsup

dash Worchestershire sauce

1 teaspoon soy sauce

2 teaspoons dry mustard

2 cups brown sugar

2 cups vinegar

2 teaspoons ginger

2 teaspoons chili powder

1 /2 cup chopped onion

2 cups sugar

1 can tomato sauce

Mix all together.

  1. 4 cups of sugar (2 brown, 2 white)? Plus all the sugar that is in the ketchup? Holy cow that would be some sweet ‘barbecue’ sauce.

  2. Yep, it would be sweet all right – there would also be a lot of it, about 2 quarts worth.

    I think you’d want to put this in a saucepan and heat/stir it until the sugars dissolve.

  4. Kevin,

    No one said we were going to have a ‘test’, I didn’t study!
