Honey Barbecue Sauce

This barbecue sauce is delicious!  It's so good!  It's a little sweet, which I love, and it also begins with the smell of onions sauteeing in butter, which is one of the best smells in the world.  Bizzuck decided that for the Fourth of July, he'd rather have barbecue than hamburgers--because of this sauce.  It didn't take very long, I already had all of the ingredients, and it can be made up to a week in advance.  What's not to like?  It's from the Southern Living Complete Quick and Easy Cookbook, so there's no surprise that it's so good. 

Honey Barbecue Sauce

1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 cup onion, diced (1/2 large onion for me)
1 cup ketchup
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp black pepper

Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, add the onion, and saute 4-5 minutes or until tender.  Stir in ketchup and remaining ingredients; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.  Stir leftover sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.  Makes about 2 cups.
