Fresh BBQ Sauce



    1. Place several quarts of water in a stockpot on the stovetop and bring to a boil over high heat. Place the tomatoes in a blanching basket and put the basket in the water, or simply drop the tomatoes into the boiling water. Within a minute or two, when the tomato skins begin to split and pull away from the flesh, remove the tomatoes with a slotted spoon to a bowl of cold water.
    2. When the tomatoes are cool enough to handle, peel off the skins and coarsely chop. Set aside. Place the canola oil in a large skillet on the stovetop over medium-high heat and add the onion, ginger, fermented black beans, garlic, and serrano chiles.
    3. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the tomatoes, reduce the heat to medium-low, and continue to cook for about 15 minutes. Add the rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, honey, and black pepper, and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
    4. Remove from the heat and place in a food processor. Blend until smooth. Keep refrigerated until needed.
