Rosemary Plum (Prune) Red Wine Glaze

Our obvious choice would be fresh plums, but keeping within the seasonal approach we had to use dried prunes for this glaze. It still makes a bold attempt and to our delight this deep, rich and velvety glaze is surprisingly perfect. The sultryness of this glaze is exceptional and using a brush of rosemary to apply glaze only heightens the overall experience! Excellent with pork as well as with roasted potatoes!
