This was the best BBQ sauce.  I am never buying it again! Fresh Peach BBQ Sauce Low Calorie Low Fat Healthy Ingredients


It continues to be all things peaches here in Georgia. I’ve been putting them in everything I can. One of our family’s favorites is this Fresh Peach BBQ sauce. It is a little sweet, a little spicy and full flavor. We’ve brushed it on ribs and kebabs. You’ll see the kebab recipe very soon. It has been so delicious on all of them and freezes wonderfully. If I need a quick dinner idea, I can defrost the Fresh Peach Barbecue Sauce and brush it on some grilled chicken breasts. Dinner is served in just 15 minutes. Since school starts in a week, I am back to thinking about quick weeknight meals.


Fresh Peach BBQ Sauce is also the foundation for Food Done Light’s Labor Day Menu – summer’s last hoorah! To me Labor Day ends the summer party season. It is all about Fall and the upcoming holidays. Of course, it will still be 90 degrees here but I can feel the potential for cooler air. My favorite thing about Labor Day is that we don’t celebrate it. What? Our wedding anniversary tends to fall right around Labor Day so we try to get away for a weekend alone. Thanks to my parents taking the little one, we have two or three days to ourselves. It is either a weekend alone with my husband or a Labor Day celebration. I’m choosing that weekend alone. I look forward to it every year.


Last year we went to Asheville, NC and are heading there again. It is the perfect location for a long weekend. They have a Christmas Shop. Yipee! I adore Christmas shops. They have fantastic restaurants. I’ve already made reservations for dinner and breakfast. Plus there is a new restaurant called “Biscuit Head”, that I cannot wait to try. I live for a breakfast with fluffy, light homemade biscuit. We’ll tour the Biltmore Estates again and walk those gorgeous grounds. We are going to hike through Chimney Rock too, and hopefully work off some of those calories from the biscuits. So, I’m not really going to miss celebrating Labor Day.

Luckily, I don’t have to wait for Labor Day to enjoy Fresh Peach BBQ Sauce. We’ve already been enjoying it, and thanks to my stash in the freezer, we can have a quick weeknight meal when we get back. You don’t have to wait either. Make Fresh Peach BBQ Sauce today. Also stay tuned to Food Done Light for the next recipe, Grilled Vegetable Platter.

  1. I just had my first Georgia peach on Monday, it was delicious!! I definitely think peaches in bbq sauce would be amazing!
  2. What a great use for all of the fresh peaches available now! Love that you can freeze it!
  3. Charlotte Moore says
    LOVE peaches!!!! My favorite fruit for sure. I wanted to get some when we go see our son in Charlotte. However, he may be coming here.
  4. This is something I would just want to eat straight. I love BBQ sauce, it is my favorite condiment. I can put it on just about anything and peaches are just about in season here. Thank you for this utterly delicious recipe.
  5. I have this on the stove simmering away, with one change...I used about 5# of plums from our trees! I'll let you know how it turns out! (Barb/Admin of FB page, Girlfriends Weight Loss Support Group, who shares your recipes all the time!)
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Wow, that sounds wonderful Barb. I love that you used plums. I can't wait to hear how it turns out.
      • This turned out great with plums. We had it on ribs last night, and decided we would add a bit more brown sugar and some cayenne. I froze 4 packages in 1-cup qty's, so when we use them, we can add whatever additional flavor we're in the mood for, too.
        • Christie Daruwalla says
          So glad it turned out. I love the idea of the plums. This is my favorite way to eat ribs now. So delish. Thanks so much for letting me know how it turned out.
  6. i love a good bbq sauce, ive always been incredibly lazy and bought mine from the store. definitely going to be trialing this recipe in my kitchen, love the idea of using peaches!
  7. this looks so yummy! i live overseas...the peaches are abundant but adobo sauce is nowhere to be found. any thoughts on substitutes? i do have liquid smoke...
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Brittany, Just use a little bit of any local hot pepper for the chipotle in adobo sauce. You could even use some red pepper flakes.
