  • In a medium-sized saucepan, combine the blueberries, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, onion powder, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper.
  • Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a simmer. Stir the ingredients to combine well.
  • Reduce the heat to low and let the sauce simmer for about 20 minutes or until the blueberries have softened and the mixture has thickened.
  • Once the sauce has thickened to a desired consistency, remove the saucepan from the heat.
  • Let the sauce cool slightly, then transfer it to a blender or use an immersion blender to puree the sauce until smooth.
  • If you prefer a chunkier sauce, you can skip the blending step or blend it partially to leave some blueberry pieces intact.
  • Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning if needed, adding more salt, pepper, or cayenne pepper to suit your taste.
  • Allow the sauce to cool completely before transferring it to a clean jar or airtight container. Store it in the refrigerator until ready to use.
