A Sauce from the Garden

July 25, 2011 | By | Comments (0)

Last weekend I did a little foraging around a friends garden and yard for some dinner provisions

In the yard I found a few raspberries, gooseberries, and currants. Fresh thyme grows all over the yard. And the garden is full of fresh chives.

I stated by sauteing some shallots. I then added the berries, currants,  thyme, a little honey, and a little water and cooked it until the berries broke down. Stirred in the chopped chives and…voila!

A savory and tart sauce that we ate with apple smoked Niman Ranch pork chops. Not to toot my own horn…but it was pretty good.

Do you ever make savory fruit sauces to pair with grilled meats?
