A great sauce is to food like a great LBD~~littl’ black dress~~is to a girl! You can do so much with it~~dress it up, dress it down~~it’s all about versatility. And, that’s what so great about this quick and easy recipe.
Another thing I love about this recipe is that I can use cherries annneeetime of the year when I choose Dole frozen pitted cherries~~oh, yes, fresh are great, but when you want them beyond the ‘season’, what do you do? These frozen pitted cherries are consistently plump, ripe, sweet, juicy and perfect for so many recipes~~so whether you’re making a smoothie, pie or cake, you’ll not be disappointed with the frozen cherries. And, in this BBQ sauce, you’ll savor the deep rich flavors!

What you need:
1 bag (12 oz) thawed DOLE Dark Red Cherries
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup raspberry jam
¼ cup honey
½ tsp sea salt
¾ cup ketchup
2 tbl Worcestershire
2 tsp minced garlic
5 tbl Korean sauce (or your choice of hot sauce–more or less depending upon your heat palate!)
What you do:
Put the thawed cherries in a food processor and pulse a few times into a mash. Put in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add the soy sauce, jam, honey, and salt and bring to a boil cooking about 20 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium. Add the ketchup, Worcestershire, garlic and Korean sauce and blend. Cook another 20 minutes over medium heat. It will thicken into a sauce.
