2 corthin 13-11“I want your character to reflect Me more and more. So endeavor to be loving and peaceful in your relationships with other people. When someone irritates or upsets you, try to see Me in that person. Remember that I created everyone in My own image. The most effective way to love people is to allow My Love to flow through you to them. My Spirit lives inside you, and you can ask Him to love others through you. To live peacefully, you need to forgive people quickly—including yourself.” —Jesus Today by Sarah Young, p. 142Blessings!

Cherry Bourbon Sauce

I had gotten several quarts of Bing cherries at the store the other day, and I am the only one in the house that eats them.  I can’t eat very many, so I needed to look for something to do with the majority of them.  I came across several recipes from Michael Symon, and decided to try the Cherry Bourbon Sauce.

I first had to figure out how to get the pit out of the cherry first, because I don’t own a cherry picker.  I know, most people don’t own one of those either.  I discovered that you can use a large paper clip (opened up).  It worked.  It was messy, but it worked.And, yes my fingernails are still stained! So, the recipe called for the following:  cup of bourbon, 1/4 red wine vineager, orange peel, juice from orange, salt and pepper.  David had exactly one cup of Bourbon left…it was a sign…it was meant to be used for this recipe! Bring to boil the bourbon, vinegar, juice from the two oranges (and peels).  Note: I added an additional 1/4 cup of vinegar, and cinnamon stick, and a bay leaf.  Simmer for ten minutes or reduced by half, then add the cherries.Let cool, and place into jars.  I partially filled two jars.  One will be a gift (birthday), and the other to be served over chicken or pork…whatever I can come up with in the next couple of weeks.  This will keep in the refrigerator for over a month, and can be served with cheese, or meat.

I am super excited to try this…with another post.

Blessings.
