Ginger BBQ Sauce

This is a pretty standard KC-style BBQ sauce with a ginger kick.

2 thumbs ginger
2 c ketchup
1 c water
1/2 c cider vinegar
1/2 c brown sugar
3 T olive oil
4 T smoked paprika
2 T chili posder
4-6 cloves garlic
2 t chili flakes

Thinly slice one thumb of ginger - no need to peel it. Bring the water to a boil, add the ginger, reduce heat to a bare simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat, strain, set aside.

Peel and finely dice the other thumb of ginger. Smash and dice the garlic. Heat the olive oil in a small saucepan, add the ginger and garlic, and saute gently until the garlic starts to color. Add 1/2 cup of the ginger-infused water and all the other ingredients. Stir, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Between the sugar and the vinegar it'll keep indefinitely in the fridge.
