Raspberry Mustard Marmalade Sauce enhances poultry and pork dishes

By Mary Bilyeu

After receiving some gorgeous, homegrown raspberries from a dear friend, I made a beautifully simple sauce to serve over some sliced chicken. I poached the chicken; but you could easily buy a rotisserie chicken and drizzle the sauce over that instead, to make things even easier for yourself.

The sauce smells so lovely as it cooks - sweet and tart with fruit and marmalade, with a bit of tang from mustard. And the color of the finished product is so intense! Whether poured over poultry or pork, spread onto a sandwich, served as a dip for chicken fingers, or any other use you can think of, this sauce is a great enhancement.

Raspberry Mustard Marmalade Sauce

1 cup raspberries 2 tablespoons white wine 2 tablespoons orange marmalade 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard pinch of kosher salt

Place the raspberries and wine into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then turn heat down to low; stir to mash the raspberries. Stir in the marmalade, mustard, and salt, then cook 1 more minute just heat through.

Makes about 2/3 cup.
