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!

INGREDIENTS

1½ cups dark and deep red wine (Zinfandel, Syrah or Cabernet Franc)
1 cup dried pitted prunes, chopped fine
½ cup sugar
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves
1 clove garlic
2 fresh bay leaves
Salt
Freshly ground pepper

PREPARATION

Place all ingredients in a small sauce pan and cook down until prunes are very soft, about 15 minutes. Remove bay leaves and blend in food processor or blender until smooth.
