June’s project was making artisan barbecue sauce!
The other side of the box this month showed the contents and ingredients.
This is the little instruction booklet that was included. It had the three recipes needed to make Classic Barbecue Sauce, Mustard Barbecue Sauce, and Vinegar & Pepper MOP.
These are the bottles and funnel that were provided. I like when glass bottles are a little wavy like this.
These are the dry ingredients that were provided.
These are the wet ingredients that were provided, plus a detergent for sterilizing the bottles before use.
Grow and Make also provided some plastic gloves and labels for the bottles. In addition to these supplies, I had to provide my own measuring and cooking equipment. I also had to provide water, ketchup, and butter.
Here are my completed sauces! A photograph really can’t give you much idea of the result, unfortunately. But they all turned out really delicious! I tasted them myself. We don’t have barbecue that often, and we are all set for sauce, so I made these for a friend of mine. I know he’s going to love them!
The technique for all three sauces was essentially the same. I had to combine all the ingredients in a saucepan, simmer covered for ten minutes, and then allow to cool. That was super easy!
Verdict: Grow and Make has some of the most interesting and unique DIY kits I have ever seen for sale, but I’m having such a hard time getting the ones I want! I think this would be a really cool project for someone who loved barbecue, but we aren’t really into it (and I hate mustard). That being said, this project was pretty easy and the result was awesome. I think the person I made these for is going to totally love them!
