Marionberry-Balsamic Glaze (and Vinaigrette)


Ingredients:
(Makes About 1 Cup)

1 Cup Frozen or Fresh Marionberries (you could also use Blackberries)
3 T. Balsamic Vinegar
3 Sprigs of Fresh Rosemary (mine were about 4" long, each)
Small Pinch of Sea Salt

  1. Add ingredients to a small saucepan and simmer, stirring often, until berries are broken down, about 7-10 minutes. 
  2. Strain (if you want a smooth, seedless consistency); use a spoon to push all of the berry pulp through holes of a fine mesh strainer. 

 


Once the sauce/glaze is finished, you can use it as a glaze for Cedar Plank Salmon. Before cooking:

  1. Sprinkle salmon with a pinch of cinnamon, ancho chile powder, and sea salt.
  2. Top with 2-3 T. of Glaze.

Vinaigrette:
To 1/2 C. of Sauce, add:
1/4 C. of EV Olive Oil
2 T. Balsamic Vinegar
Pinch of Ancho Chile Powder 
Pinch of Cinnamon


Whisk ingredients, to combine.

This looks delicious Jen! I'm not a huge fan of blackberries, but this just might convert me. Thanks for sharing it!

Thanks for sharing this! I just recently ordered something similar at an Italian restaurant and would love to duplicate it. Yours sounds even better with the berries!

But in spite of their textures and shapes, waffles made by Villaware waffle irons and makers can absolutely complete a worker's day as it is certainly designed to help working individuals to spend a time baking an exquisitely palatable breakfast.
