Sauté onion and gingerroot in oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat until soft, about 5 minutes.

Add preserves, rum, barbecue sauce, lime juice, and red pepper flakes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer sauce about 20 minutes or until thickened. Reserve 1/2 cup sauce to serve as dipping sauce. Use remaining sauce (about 1 cup) for basting Dixie-Stuffed Chicken Legs during grilling.
