SCD Barbecue Sauce

1 c. minced onion (as fine as you can get it)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 c. olive oil
2 15 oz cans crushed tomatoes (check for added sugar) or 4 c. peeled and chopped fresh tomatoes
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/8 tsp. ground coriander seed
1/8 tsp. cumin
2/3 c. honey
4 T. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. ground dried chipotle pepper
1/2 c. water (omit if using fresh tomatoes)

1. Saute onion and garlic in oil in a large stockpot 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally.
2. When the onions are beginning to brown add all other ingredients. Simmer stirring occasionally for 1-2 hours. Sauce should thicken and its color become darker.
3. Adjust seasonings, I added another 2 tsp. salt.
4. Cook until sauce is the consistency you want. You can make it smoother by blending with an immersion blender or a food processor but personally I like the little chunks.
5. Serve with your favorite chicken, ribs or beef. I had enough for the chicken tenders pictured and I plan on using the rest for Shredded Beef Sandwiches.
