Nothing says summer-time like BBQ. Well, maybe homemade, freshly churned ice cream, but we’ll focus on that another time. 😉

A good BBQ sauce is pretty much a must-have for any summer cook-out, potluck, or family get together. This raw version is super easy to whip up, and all the ingredients are delicious and healthy, so you don’t have to feel bad slathering it all over your chicken, ribs, carrots, potatoes, or even crackers (if you’re like my kids).

If you’re wondering what kind-of a taste you’re gonna get from a raw BBQ sauce, it’s not sweet. The raw garlic and apple cider vinegar give it a bit of a tangy bite, but they also provide a boatload of nutrients that will make any mom happy to serve it. 😉

Now, there are tons of posts out there about the health benefits of garlic (here are 19 health benefits of garlic) and apple cider vinegar (check out this post for 6 proven benefits of ACV), so I’m just going to touch on a few of my favorites:

Garlic is full of B6, which is needed for a healthy immune system, and also produces allicin, a natural antibiotic. It’s my first go-to when I’m coming down with something. Smash and swallow a couple raw cloves a day and I’m feeling better in no time!

Apple cider vinegar contains malic acid, which gives it anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial properties.

Add the bacteria killing proteins from honey to the list, and this BBQ sauce is a powerhouse of immune-boosting health!

So go ahead, make yourself some and enjoy a tasty healthy BBQ this summer!

About Raia Todd

Raia is a homeschooling, stay-at-home-mom of five crazy kids. After the birth of her third child in 2010, she was diagnosed with “trauma induced gluten intolerance”. This discovery turned her whole-wheat-bread, pasta-filled life was turned upside down and set her on a mission to find out what healthy really meant for her family. Aspiring to encourage other moms wandering the allergen-infested isles of grocery stores, she started her blog, Raia’s Recipes, to share her love of simple, allergy-friendly baking (and chocolate). Her easy, healthy recipes prove that eating allergy-free doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive! When she’s not whipping up something new in the kitchen, Raia enjoys trying to keep the plants in her backyard garden alive, hanging out with her church family, eating (allergy-friendly) pizza, and dreaming about all the things she would do if she had an acre of land to homestead.

    • Hi M’D – I have updated the recipe to make that more clear in the instructions! Hope that helps! 🙂

    • For future reference. “T”= Tablespoon and “t” = teaspoon. And of course as you said C = Cup

  2. What a great recipe!! Thanks for sharing 🙂
    I’ve never tried homemade BBQ sauce but will definitely try this one.

  3. I love, love homemade BBQ sauce and this is amazing! PINNED bc I love it 🙂
    Saying hello from family fun friday link party!

  4. This recipe sounds the business, I try to avoid shop bought sauces on the whole as I think they taste synthetic, so I will be trying this recipe out for sure at some point. I may have a problem getting hold of apple cider vinegar, so will have to substitute it with grapes vinegar, which I don’t think will affect it too much.

    I found this recipe by clicking through from the #SHINEbloghop.

    • Hi Debbie – I think that switch would work just fine! Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  5. Where do you get the glass bottle to store it in?


    Posted 07/30/14

    • Hi Susan – I’m not sure where Raia got those. I’ll have to ask! You may be able to find something similar on Amazon.

    • Hey Susan, I actually just permanently borrowed that sweet little jar from my mom the last time I was at her house… 😉 I usually store the sauce in an old dressing or ketchup jar, or a pint-sized mason jar.

  6. I must admit I didn’t love this raw, so I tossed in some apple juice and simmered it down for about a half hour. Really solidified the flavors, tamed the garlic and think it’ll be perfect with pork ribs.


    Posted 09/26/14

    • Great tips Jessica! I will make a note of that in the recipe in case others want to give that a try. Thanks for taking the time to stop by! 🙂

  7. Hi there, I was wondering if I decided to buy my own organic non canned tomatoes and dice them myself, would I need to cook the tomatoes first or just toss them in with everything and blend?


    Posted 06/08/15

    • Hi Nicole – I’ve never tried it with fresh tomatoes. I think you may need to cook them in order to get the right consistency for the sauce. If you try it, let us know how it goes! 🙂

  8. How can you adjust this to make with tomatoes out of the garden?


    Janice Yeagle
    Posted 07/03/15

    • Hi Janice! We’ve never tried it with raw/fresh tomatoes. I’m not sure what adjustments would need to be made. If I were personally going to use fresh, I’d probably just follow the recipe without any adjustments and use the fresh tomatoes and see how it turned out. If you give it a try, let us know how it turns out! 🙂

  9. Looks like this recipe can easily be adapted to make homemade ketchup. What would you recommend, or do you have a separate recipe for ketchup?

    Posted 01/28/16

    • Hi Isabel! Thanks for stopping by! I have not tried adapting this to a regular ketchup recipe, though I am sure you could. You might have to play around with the spices a bit. If you give it a try let us know how it turns out! 🙂
