“This is an easy sauce that goes well with chicken, turkey, fish, and pork. It is not a strongly flavored sauce, so it doesn't overpower the meat at all, but it does add nice color and an herb flavor with some sweetness from the cherries. I suggest using thyme sprigs, so they can easily be removed when the sauce is done. I have used agave syrup, and that works too. Frozen cherries work well with this if they are unsweetened. The finished sauce also freezes well. (Use sweet cherries, not pie cherries. I like it made with Bing cherries.)”
