With summer on the horizon, warmer weather on the way and longer evenings approaching, it is time to get out the BBQ and start some alfresco dining with family and friends. Newman’s Own Original Sticky BBQ sauce is perfect for adding some tang to barbecue food. It’s great to use when marinating meat, vegetables and fish as everything you need is in one bottle. No need to search the cupboards for spices, oils, herbs etc. to mix together and make a tasty marinade, as you can just open up a bottle of Newman’s Own and pour over instead.
