Wow! Who knew that a flat of Marion berries could be so inspiring! All I was thinking was jam and maybe a crisp.
I thawed out some chicken thighs and left for happy hour with the dames. When I came home I discovered Jonathon had hit a home-run in the culinary department.

Blackberry or Marionberry BBQ Sauce
This sauce works particularly well with grilled beef, and it's great on steaks of all kinds.
About 3 cups
¼ cup butter
¼ cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon. chopped garlic
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon hot sauce of choice
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
3 cups fresh blackberries, crushed
Heat the butter in a saucepan, add onion and garlic and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add all the other ingredients including the berries and cook for about 10 minutes in a slow simmer. You may wish to let this reduce down a bit if the sauce appears too thin.
