Celebrity Chef #12 and Her Special Sauce

Hi everyone! Kate Hymowitz is our next Celebrity Home Chef in our JaN. series. Originally from MA, she is a textile designer, proud mom of three, and makes a mean Balsamic Fruit Sauce.

She says the recipe is from her Dad, very simple, just a few ingredients but very tasty.
Serve as a sauce for Roasted Chicken or Turkey.

Enjoy and keep sending in those recipes!

Balsamic Fruit Sauce:

1 cup Dried Apricots (cut into thirds)
1/2 cup Dried Cherries (you can also use dried cranberries)
1/2 cup Prunes (cut into thirds)
3 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar (or to taste)
3 tablespoons Cornstarch

Place the apricots, cherries and prunes in a saucepan and pour water over it until it just covers the fruit.
Bring to a boil and add the balsamic vinegar.
Let the sauce simmer for about 15 minutes, the fruit should have plumped up.
In a small bowl mix the cornstarch with 3 tablespoons of cold water and stir until smooth.
Gradually stir the liquid cornstarch mixture into the saucepan until it is blended and smooth,
stirring constantly as the sauce thickens.
Continue to simmer for about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and let cool a few minutes before serving.
