Spicy Sticky Cherry Blueberry Sauce

Looking for a new way to spruce up your meats? Try this spicy cherry blueberry sauce! It pairs especially well with barbecued ribs, duck or chicken. In the winter, warm up by soaking a roast dinner in this mildly spicy sauce!


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oilGluten-free cherry blueberry sauce
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 dried cayenne pepper, chopped (or about 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes)
  • 1 cup pitted and halved fresh Bing cherries
  • 1/2 cup whole fresh blueberries


  1. Mix the sugar, vegetable oil and salt together in a non-stick pan. Cook the mixture over low heat while stirring, until the sugar melts and the mixture caramelizes.
  2. Add cayenne pepper and 1 clove of garlic. Cook for a few seconds.
  3. Carefully deglaze the pan by pouring the red wine vinegar into the pan. Stir constantly. (There may be some spattering when you add the vinegar, so step back a bit and use a long-handled spoon to stir!)
  4. When the sugar mass is nearly dissolved, add the bing cherries and blueberries. Raise the heat to medium and cook to thicken a bit, about 4 minutes.
  5. Refresh the sauce with the remaining 2 cloves of garlic. Stir briefly and set aside.
  6. Serve with your meat of choice!
