Cabernet Sauvignon Sauce
An excellent sauce for cheesecake, ice cream, pancakes, pies, tarts, and chilled roast chicken. Adapted from Chopstix by Hugh Carpenter.
(1) 750-ml bottle Cabernet Sauvignon
(1) 10-oz bag frozen organic, unsweetened raspberries, defrosted
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
In a large stainless steel saucepan or skillet, combine the wine, raspberries, sugar, and pepper. Bring to a vigorous boil over high heat and cook until only 2 cups remain (about 30 minutes of rapid boiling). As the sauce begins to thicken, stir with a spoon to prevent scorching. Strain the liquid through a sieve to remove the seeds. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. (Sauce will keep a month in the refrigerator.)Makes 1¼ cups
