Blackberry BBQ Sauce

2 cups fresh blackberries
1 cup no sugar or naturally sweetened ketchup
2 tbs. honey
2 tbs. apple cider vinegar
2 tbs. yellow mustard
½ lemon, juiced
2 tsp. chili powder
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
Salt and pepper to taste
In a small saucepan on low heat cook the blackberries with a ¼ cup of water and the lemon juice. As the berries cook down use a potato masher to break them down. It should take about 5-8 minutes for the berries to cook down and release their juice. Once cooked down strain the mash and juice through a sieve until all the liquid comes out. (Tip: Use a spoon to help push all the berry puree through the sieve.)
Add the berry puree back to pot with the ketchup, honey, apple cider vinegar, yellow mustard, chili powder, ground cinnamon, salt and pepper. Cook on low heat until everything is fully combined and thickened. Cool and serve.
