Sweet and sour cherry sauce Add to ...

Cherries pair brilliantly with savoury flavours like balsamic vinegar and black pepper. Try this sauce on grilled chicken seasoned with cumin, ground coriander, salt and pepper. The combination is killer.

  • Servings: 2 cups of sauce

Sweet and sour cherry sauce

2 cups pitted cherries

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup sugar (if using sour cherries, use a 1/2 cup)

1 tbsp aged balsamic vinegar

freshly ground pepper, to taste

Method

Cut cherries into halves. In a medium saucepan, combine with water, sugar and vinegar. Simmer over medium-low heat, mashing cherries lightly with a fork until they release their liquid and thicken into a sauce; about 10 minutes. Season sauce with pepper, and serve warm.
