OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A unique blend of fruity, nutty and spicy.  Best of all–all these flavors and textures were approved by the boy, so I know this recipe is a keeper !

Ingredients for the sauce:

4, 16oz bags of frozen raspberries

1, 7oz can of chipotle in adobo

1 tbsp of fresh thyme

1 tbsp of brown sugar

Blend the berries and chipotle peppers and strain into a sauce pan.  Add thyme and sugar and cook till sauce is thick and reduced.  You will get more than what you will need for this meal, so jar it and save it for later.  It is a wonderful marinade for grilled chicken.
