Loquat BBQ (??) Sauce

Posted by Bee & John on October 31, 2014 at 3:15 AM

I met a lovely lady this week (Hi Kit!!) who gave me a lovely bag of Lemons and Loquats!




Now... I didn't want to say so.... but I had NO idea what a loquat was!!! I tried one on the way home and it was sorta like a cross between a Nashi Pear and a Lemon - yum.. but it was going to be a whole lot of work to get a feed out of them!




I checked out the net when I got home and found this website. I was intrigued with the Loquat BBQ sauce and gave it a try... but really... BBQ Sauce?? Not really... great as a marinade or a salad dressing, but not really what I would call BBQ sauce. What is more, it was sorta blah! So I thought I'd trick it up a bit and make a bit more tasty and useful. It didn't take much - well worth the effort. John has marinated a chook with it today and is going to cook it on the BBQ ( so it sorta IS BBQ sauce LOL)




Interestngly, it doesn't have any onion or garlic in it!!!  I think a few garlic cloves would be lovely in it... but it is nice without too.




Loquat Sauce






  • 6-700g of loquats
  • 250g of brown sugar
  • 1000g of Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of chilli flakes, OR, 3 small chillies, OR to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of smoked paprika
  • 1-2 tablespoons of salt
  • 1-2 TEAspoons of black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of seeded mustard



  • wash the loquats and remove all the pips. Leave everything else and put into the thermomix
  • Chop on speed 6 for 6 seconds - scrape down
  • add the rest of the ingredients
  • cook on 100oC for 30-45 mintues (until desired thickness has been achieved) with the MC off and the Simmer basket in place
  • Blend (CAREFULLY) on speed 9 for 1 mintue
  • put into sterilised jars


As I said... I might not use this as a BBQ sauce.... but as a marinade, yes!! as a salad dressing? Oh yes!!! It would be great in a bit of a curry too!! I'd welcome some other suggestions!!!
