Montmorency Sauce

by

Yield: Makes about 4 cups

The sweetness makes it suitable for sautéed chicken breasts or roast duckling, as well as more robustly flavored meats such as pork chops. --Peg Leg Inn, Rockport, Massachusetts

Ingredients:

  • 1 can (28 ounces) pitted Bing cherries
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 6 drops Tabasco sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions:

Drain the liquid from the cherries into a medium saucepan, reserving the cherries. Add lemon juice, molasses, Tabasco sauce, and mustard to the liquid and bring to a boil. Mix cornstarch in water to make a paste, then add to cherry liquid, whisking constantly until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and add cherries. Serve over sautéed chicken breasts or roast duckling.
