|Blackberry Port Sauce
The ultimate serving sauce with grilled bison or game.
1 TBS minced shallot
1 TBS olive oil
1/2 cup Vintage character or Ruby Port
1/2 pint fresh Blackberries
1/4 cup demi glace (suggested: ‘More Than Gourmet’ Instant Demi Glace)
1-2 tsp brown sugar or honey
Sauté minced shallots in olive oil until soft, add port and simmer 5 minutes, add fresh berries (reserving a few for garnish) and demi glace prepared according to package directions. Simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes, crushing berries with a fork. Balance acidity with brown sugar or honey. When sauce tastes rich and thick, strain and reserve. Variation: for a creamier sauce, whisk in 1 TBS or so of fat free sour cream into cooled sauce and serve at room temperature.
