When we launched the new Cherry Mimosa Conserve I wan’t sure what to do with it other than the obvious and create something fun, quick and easy.
Cherry Republic’s Cherry Mimosa Conserve thickens when you refrigerate it, but because of the juice content it gets more liquid when you work with it as a sauce; so it takes more time to get the water to evaporate and sauce to thicken. I discovered by cooking the conserve into a sauce, it tones down the sweetness and compliments pork and chicken nicely.
