Blueberry Bourbon Barbecue Sauce
I'm sitting here going through my emails of recipes and website and ran across something that caught my eye. Rubs and Sauces.. Hmmm... Let's see if it is something I can have? Yep, looks good. Will try it out on a bbq'd porkloin

* 1 tablespoon olive oil
* 1 small red onion, chopped
* 4 cloves garlic, chopped
* 1-2 jalapenos, seeded and chopped
* 1/2 cup bourbon
* 2 cups fresh or frozen (not thawed) blueberries
* 1/2 cup ketchup (sugar free or low salt)
* 1/3 cup cider vinegar
* 2 tablespoons brown sugar (there is a new brown sugar out. I must find it)
* 1 tablespoon molasses
* 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and just starting to brown, 2 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and jalapeno and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add bourbon, increase heat to high and bring to a boil; cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Stir in blueberries, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, molasses and allspice; return to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 20 minutes.
