Recipe by justcallmetoni
A quick scan of my recipe collection reveals my fondness for fruit sauces with poultry or pork. So when I found this one in a Weight Watchers cookbook, I was instantly taken with it. Though I will not try this until later this week, the presentation here includes my modifications. I have made this with dried cherries and it was superb, almost better than the original. If using cherries, reduce the amount of ginger a small amount. (5 points)
