Prepare the cold barbecue sauces one after the other according to the instructions in the article.
The eggs must be hard boiled right at the beginning so that they can cool down.
Alternatively, please buy hard-boiled eggs!
Skin the tomatoes and prepare the tomato concasse .
Put the tomato seeds and the juice without tomato skins in an extra cup, we use these as a supplement for the pesto.
Marinate the tomato pulp with salt, pepper, sugar and olive oil.
Fold in freshly chopped or finely plucked basil.
Finely grate the Parmesan cheese and mix in a blender with the basil leaves, salt, pepper, a little garlic and olive oil to form a basil pesto.
You can add the strained juice from preparing the tomatoes to balance the acidity.
Mix the ingredients for the cold base sauce in a bowl and divide evenly into three bowls.
Mix the mustard and honey and add a portion of the base sauce to taste for a strong or light honey mustard sauce.
You could optionally add dill tips (dried or fresh) to this sauce.
Peel and halve hard-boiled and cold eggs.
Finely chop the egg yolk and egg white separately and finish with the chive rolls and base sauce to form a simple tartar sauce.
You can also taste this sauce with salt, pepper and lemon juice.
Mix the last bowl of base sauce with the finely chopped herbs and season to taste.
Decoration tips for the 5 barbecue sauces:
Herbs, black and light sesame, whole nuts, olive oil or other oil, goji berries, flaked almonds, edible flowers such as cornflowers, spices such as turmeric and sweet paprika (not with pesto).
Among other things, I like to use colorful sesame seeds from Japanese cuisine.

3. Tomato Ketchup, a fresh Tomato Dip as a BBQ Sauce
For this tomato dip you need:
- 8 large, fleshy, firm tomatoes
- basil or parsley
- salt, pepper, sugar and olive oil.
- I cook the 4 eggs for the tartar sauce in this step
- First, put a pot of water on the stove.
- Get 4 eggs ready, you need them for the 5th cold sauce.
- As soon as the water boils, put in the eggs and set the egg timer to 12 minutes.
- Then carve the tomatoes and blanch for about 25 seconds next to the eggs in the pot.
- When the skin of the tomatoes starts to fall off, place the tomatoes in cold, preferably ice, water.
- Now peel the tomatoes, quarter them, cut only the tomato flesh into cubes and place in a bowl.
- You can then use the ice water to cool the eggs.
- Put the tomato seeds in an extra cup, we use them for the second dip.
- Marinate the tomato pulp with salt, pepper, sugar and olive oil, fold in the freshly chopped herbs.
