Tomato-free BBQ Peach Sauce

Tomato-free Peach BBQ Sauce - Here's a different sauce for BBQing: Peach BBQ Sauce that's even nightshade-free.

This peach sauce was created for a friend who can't eat nightshades as we were planning on BBQing chicken.  Plus we had some fresh peaches from the farmer's market and just had to use them.

So last week Holley and I spent the week in Vancouver with some friends.  It was a fantastic visit, and holy cow was the weather ever awesome!  Good food, great company, and fun times.

We broke up the drive by stopping at a provincial park in an area that I've been wanting to explore for a while now.  It was absolutely incredible.  I've told you in the past that I really crave getting away from man-made sound-pollution, and this spot was loud with nature!  I've recently been seeking out more time in nature, and I find that I am really recharged by water.  I don't mean Evian or Dasani – although I believe there was a Nestle bottling plant not too far away. Running water and ocean waves really bring something out in me.  After spending only about 15 minutes by myself watching and listening to the water flowing, and feeling it's coldness on my feet, I was like a totally different person.

I took some videos to share with you actually.  Check 'em out:

(I actually used most of my month's phone data attempting to upload that to Instagram.)

I really enjoy visiting these friends.  We played hours and hours of Dutch Blitz (if you haven't played it, it's this fast-paced card game that really forces you to concentrate!), relaxed by the pool, and painted by the beach:

It was a really refreshing visit, and I feel energized in a way that I haven't in months!  I hope you find this peach sauce fresh and energizing, especially knowing that it was born out of such a fun week!

    Isn’t it simply amazing how a few minutes spent in nature, by running water particularly, can completely refresh you? I’ve been so happy that I can get on hikes here in Colorado again now that the snow is gone. And this sauce – yum!! We love all things peach so will have to try this!

      Yesss! I’m making a bigger effort to be in nature. Even while doing things like working on a cookbook!

      Hey Cristina,

      Nightshade-free was the need at the time for a friend. But yes, I really made it for you!

    Ohh I love all kinds of BBQ sauce! I really have to be careful in the summer too that I’m not eating too many nightshades with all the fresh veggies. I can handle a little, but feel much better when I sub in a few nightshade-free sauce options 🙂
