Excellent sauce for poultry. Loved the flavor of the spices enhancIng the cherry preserves. We cheat and buy a precooked half duckling that all we have to do is warm up in the oven and then I broill it to get the skin crispy. This sauce was amazing drizzled over the duck. Made for Spring 2013 PAC.

Fast, easy & delicious! It didn't thicken much as it cooled. I *didn't* add the extra 3TB sugar because there is plenty of sugar in the jam. Next time I will add more cloves & cardamom. We loved this!
