Pork with Blueberry Compote

image

It’s that time of year again!! Fresh produce and yummy berries. I had some blueberries handy and by now, you know I have a soft spot for pork.

These little buggers don’t need much to make a delicious sauce. Once heated, they’ll get nice and syrupy… Perfect for a nice grilled pork loin.

I like to let them hang in ginger, red pepper flakes, salt and garlic. Then comes some heat (no, not more red pepper flakes… The real kind of heat).

A wee bit of wine, over low heat, results in a beautiful blueberry compote.

Ingredients:
2 cups of blueberries
1 tsp of ground ginger
1 Tbs crushed garlic
1/4 cup dry white wine or champaign vinegar
Salt and pepper

Rinse the berries and add everything to the bowl, except the wine.

Let it rest for 20-30 minutes.

Add the mixture to a saucepan and add the wine. Over low heat, simmer to allow the wine to burn off (about 4-5 minutes). Slightly crush the blueberries.
Warm it up just before serving.

It’s so easy and very tasty!!
