Eco-Friendly Coffee: Blackberry-Coffee Barbecue Sauce

<em>Makes about 1½ cups</em>
<p>Here’s a quick and easy sauce that you can put together in a matter of minutes yet tastes like it took hours to make. Baste it on anything that goes on the grill, or use it as a sauce for beans and rice, on sautéed fish or roasted chicken, or basted on oven-roasted potatoes.</p>
<p>• ¾ cup ketchup<br />
• ½ cup strong coffee<br />
• ¼ cup blackberry jam (use a 100 percent fruit jam for best flavor)<br />
• 1  tablespoon tomato paste<br />
• 1  tablespoon balsamic vinegar<br />
• ½ to 1 tablespoon brown sugar (depending on desired sweetness)<br />
• ¼ teaspoon cumin<br />
• ¼ teaspoon chile powder<br />
• ¼ teaspoon garlic powder or garlic granules</p>
<p>1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 10 minutes.</p>
<p>2. Remove from heat and let cool. Use immediately or store any unused sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.</p>
