Dogwood sauce for the winter


Sauces made from fruits, berries or mixtures (fruit and berry sauces), depending on the spices and seasonings included in their composition, are prepared for both desserts and meat dishes. A sweet fruit and berry sauce with cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla is, for example, suitable for ice cream, cheesecakes, pancakes, puddings and stews. The same sauces can be served with chicken or turkey. Spicy berry sauces are prepared for meat and game. In their composition, puree, whole berries or pieces of fruit and spicy spices are harmoniously balanced.


Ripe dogwood is an excellent sauce that can be served safely with both meat and fish, as it is made in Georgian cuisine. Berries for winter sauce are chosen well ripe so that the bone can be easily separated from the pulp. From the products listed in the recipe, a half liter jar of sauce is obtained.
