Home Run Honey Sauce

Makes 2 cups

  • 1 cup water
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 6 Tablespoons green onion, thinly sliced
  • 6 teaspoons fresh jalapeno peppers, chopped and seeded
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 4 Tablespoons seedless red raspberry preserves
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 3 Tablespoons hot sauce

In small bowl, whisk together water and cornstarch. Set aside. Lightly spray the bottom of a medium saucepan with non-stick spray. Over medium heat, sauté garlic, green onion and chopped jalapeño in the saucepan for 2 to 3 minutes until softened. Add honey, raspberry preserves, ketchup and hot sauce to pan and stir well to incorporate. Cook over medium heat for 1 to 3 minutes to infuse all flavors. Whisk in water/cornstarch mixture and continue to cook over medium heat just until sauce thickens from cornstarch, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and allow sauce to cool slightly. Brush sauce onto one side of meat (chicken breasts, ribs and pork chops all work well) during the final 1 to 2 minutes of grilling. (Sauce will burn if left over heat too long.) Remove finished meat from grill and place onto serving platter. If desired, garnish top of meat with additional sliced green onion.
