Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Cherry Infused Wine Sauce

This is a yummy sauce.  Made with a sweet red wine and dried cherries, it marries the sweetness of these with the savory chicken stock.  Serve it hot with Ham, as listed below, or chicken. 

  1.5 Tsp cornstarch                                                1/2 Cup Sweet Red Wine
  1 3/4 Cup Chicken Stock                                       2.5 Ounce Dried Cherries
  1/8 Tsp ground allspice                                          2 Tbl packed brown sugar

Stir the cornstarch and stock in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth, set aside.  In a 2 or 3 quart pot over medium-high heat, stir together the allspice, wine, cherries and brown sugar and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook until the mixture is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.  Stir the cornstarch mixture in the skillet. Cook and stir until the mixture boils and  thickens and reduces about 1/3.  Serve with sliced ham.
