Chipotle Peach BBQ Sauce
Makes about 2 cups

2 cloves of garlic, minced
½ tsp salt
½ tsp allspice
Freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

¼ cup tomato sauce
3 ripe yellow peaches, peeled and diced (about 1 ½ cups)
2 chipotle chiles in adobo, roughly chopped
Heat the oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium-high. Add the shallot and cook until translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic, salt and pepper, and allspice and cook for 1 minute more. Stir in the vinegar, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, tomato sauce, chipotle and peaches and cook until the peaches become soft, about 10 minutes.
Transfer the mixture into a blender and blend until smooth.
