Hawaiian Sweet and Sour BBQ Sauce Recipe + Free Printable


The BBQ doesn’t have to end just because it’s the tail end of summer! There are still football games and tailgating parties needing tasty BBQ. I love this Hawaiian Sweet and Sour BBQ Sauce because no matter what time of year it is, you’ll always feel like you’re at a luau.

This sauce goes great on all types of meat (fish, chicken, pork, beef) and you can always add spice (chili pepper flakes) to it if you want. I’m not a big spicy person – I have more of a sweet tooth to be honest, so I always lean towards a fruity concoction. Either way, you’ll love this recipe.

Cook time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 small can of pineapple juice – 6oz.
  • ½ cup of packed brown sugar
  • ½ can of crushed pineapple in pineapple juice
  • ¾ cup of ketchup

Step 1: While the sauce is cooling, print out these free downloadable printables on OnlineLabel.com’s 3” x 1.5” ovals (OL892) and 2” circles (OL5375) and stick the labels on your glass jar. I bought these self-sealable glass jars at Hobby Lobby.

Step 2: Pour the BBQ sauce in the jars.

These jars make fun hostess gifts, party favors (especially luaus), and a cool way to present your favorite BBQ sauce when guests come over or when you go tailgating.

Enjoy and let me know what you think!

    Hi Dayna,
    Honestly, I’ve never canned before, so I can’t give you an informed answer. My apologies. Please experiment with it though and let us know. We can always add it to the post if it works! Thanks!!! I hope you enjoy the sauce! It’s tasty!!

    Hello,
    How long will this keep in these jars and does it have to be refrigerated? Also, how many jars does one batch make? Great little gifts!
    Thanks,
    Chris

      Hi! Yes keep these refrigerated and since there are no preservatives use within two weeks. Depending on your size jars, one batch will make 3-5 jars. 🙂
