chili sauce subsitute

Good morning, Mamatouille readers! Long time no post and I've really missed it, actually. We moved from Seattle to Orlando on February 1, then were in the UK for ten weeks, and the past two weeks have been really hectic and bittersweet for our family. My grandfather has gone on to Heaven and my uncle's had a motorcycle accident--we're praying for him to be completely healed from all his injuries.

I'm making a meal for some friends who had a baby just before we left for our UK adventure, and as I realized I didn't have any chili sauce to make BBQ pulled pork in the slow cooker, I searched for some substitutes.

Here's a good one from AllRecipes:

1 c. tomato sauce
1/4 c. brown sugar
2 T. vinegar
1/4 t. allspice

Well, I don't have any tomato sauce, either! One source says to use 1 part tomato paste to 1 part water, so I'll try that.

And yep, I don't have any allspice, but found out that it's a mixture of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.

So three substitutions in one for you today.

Stay tuned for a yummy BBQ sauce recipe that I made to go over meatballs and saffron rice the other day.
