RECIPE: Chipotle-Cherry Barbecue Glaze
We had this tonight on grilled chicken wings, it was delicious! Very easy to make, I used a stick blender instead of a food processor. It's a really good sweet-hot (not too hot!) sauce!
Chipotle-Cherry Barbecue Glaze
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 medium onion, finely chopped
8 ounces cherry preserves (3/4 cup)
1/4 cup minced seeded chipotle chile in adobo sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup cider vinegar
In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until bubbling, about 5 minutes longer. Transfer the mixture to a food processor and process until fairly smooth. Transfer to a bowl and let cool before using. The glaze can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
NOTES : Use this spicy, smoky, sweet barbecue sauce to glaze grilled meat or poultry in the last few minutes of cooking. It can also be served on the side. from Food and Wine June 2005
