Savory Raspberry Sauce Recipe

This savory raspberry sauce recipe is ideal for chicken or pork.

It's a bit sweet which appeals to kids and can be a great way to get them to try a different type or cut of meat.

I loved this recipe but my husband hated it, he though it was too sweet and that fruit isn't a dinner item.

I'll be making it again though; he'll get used to fruit on the dinner table eventually.

There is no need to cook this sauce before using so it's a huge time saver on freezer cooking assembly days.

It can also be served on top of pre-cooked chicken or pork that you've made ahead and frozen for a dinner that is ready in under 5 minutes.

Savory Raspberry Sauce Recipe

  • 1/4 cup raspberry jam (ideally seedless)
  • 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp fresh thyme leaves (optional)

Pour all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk well to combine.

Use a raspberry jam and Dijon mustard that you'd eat in other dishes.

Makes enough for about 2 to 2 1/2 pounds of meat.

How Can I Make This Healthier

Look for a low sugar raspberry jam but don't get artificial sweeteners to avoid sugar; they are worse for your body.

If your really ambitious make your own jam at home going light on the sugar or using honey instead.

How to Freeze

Pour sauce over the raw meat in a freezer bag and smooch it around to coat everything.

Remove as much air as possible and freeze.

Remember to label and date the bag and add it to your freezer inventory.

Include the type and cut of meat in your label and inventory sheet.

How to Thaw
Thaw in the fridge overnight and cook as usual for the type and cut of meat.
