  1. I made this sauce yesterday subbing blueberries instead of raspberries – very delicious! Thanks for posting such great recipes – both your spicy and sweet pulled pork are go-to recipes for me now!

  2. Any idea what the EVOO is for? The recipe calls for 4 TBS but then doesn’t say what to do with it. Is it the “heat up some coconut oil” piece? TIA! Can’t wait to try this on the pulled pork tonight.

  3. The pork was delish and I was so looking forward to the sauce, but the seeds in the raspberries killed it for me. Sorry, but I’ll have to stick with the Beasty BBQ sauce for everything. Now that’s the bomb.

  4. I used this with the pulled pork and it was fantastic! I liked it so much I was eating the sauce out of the pan lol. It was so good I wondered what else I could put it in/on so I mixed some up with a little bit of paleo mayonnaise and grilled chicken and some cut up veggies and it makes an amazing chicken salad!

  5. Why do you add the ketchup? Is it for the spices? Body? Acidity? Just wondering because I am allergic to tomatoes, and would need to find a substitute for the ketchup. Otherwise, this sounds fantastic!

  6. I made this with blackberries, since the store had only sweetened raspberries. Still very good, though the blackberry seeds are more noticeable than more than raspberry would be. Also, it’s one of those things that’s better the next day, so make it ahead of time if you can!

  7. This looks great! I am excited to make it to go with the crock pot pulled pork this week. I am in a paleo challenge at my CrossFit and I am VERY strict paleo during the challenge, so I'm not eating honey. How critical is it to the recipe? Since it's such a small amount, I'm hoping it will still be great. What do you think?
