How to make it

  • If you can’t find dried cherries in your market, substitute any dried berries (most stores carry “Craisins” – a sweetened cranberry) or even raisins. This preparation also works wonderfully with pork, upland game or antlered game.
  • Place the apples into a medium saucepan with 3/4 cup water, brown sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer until apples are just tender, about 10 minutes. Add cherries and simmer another 5 minutes.
  • Drain liquid and stir in cinnamon, coriander, cayenne pepper and butter. Keep warm, but just warm. If sauce becomes too cool and congeals, heat over very low heat while stirring until warm, but not hot.
  • Season duck breasts with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and brown ducks breasts evenly on both sides until medium-rare. Spoon apple mixture onto each plate and top with duck breasts.

    This is delish. Since I love to customize recipes sometimes, I used some already reduced muscadine cider that I had on hand instead of the water, with the apples. I soaked the dried cherries in some Brandy, then put all in the pot together. Then I cooked until reduced a little. I did not drain the liquid out, it tasted too good and made a great sauce over the duck. I am serving it with sauteed kale with onion, bacon and dried cranberries plus a baked sweet potato.
    Yummy dinner.
