World Equestrian Center – Ocala will debut their own Blueberry-Chipotle Barbecue Sauce on Saturday, May 14 in conjunction with their inaugural Blueberry Festival powered by Gary Yeomans Ford. Made with blueberries harvested at World Equestrian Center’s 25-acre blueberry farm in Ocala, the barbecue sauce is an all-natural product that’s proudly made and bottled in America. WEC’s world-class culinary team devised the unique combination of ingredients in-house, taking their inspiration from classic barbecue recipes and infusing the fresh and sweet flavor of the Florida southern highbush blueberry.
Ryker Brown, Director of Culinary, Food and Beverage at World Equestrian Center describes the flavor profile: “It’s a sweet, but well-balanced sauce. The smoky chipotle spice is forward and strong, but it finishes with a mild, sweet note of blueberry. There’s also molasses and worcheshire in the recipe, which gives it an umami flavor that complements traditional barbecue ingredients, like onion, garlic and brown sugar.”
Attendees at Saturday’s festival can get their finger’s sticky and sample this zesty barbecue sauce on the smoked barbecue ribs and pulled pork sandwiches. Taste it, love it and bring it home! Purchase a 13.5-oz bottle at the outdoor farmer’s market for just $12.
With Father’s Day just around the corner and the summer barbecue season about to be in full force, a bottle of the Blueberry-Chipotle Barbecue Sauce makes a perfect gift for Dad and will be a fun addition to any backyard grill out. Try it at home with barbecue chicken, grilled steaks, roasted potatoes or as a fun side sauce for your favorite dippable snacks.
