I tried a new sauce recipe for our 4th of July BBQ and I must say it was very tasty. I made a simple cherry sauce for my husband add to the wings on the grill. Here’s the recipe:
Marinate the wings in the seasonings or marinade of your choice. Refrigerate until ready for grilling.
Prep grill. When ready, lay wings evenly and cover.
In a medium sauce pan, Add:
About 20-25 Whole Cherries (Pull all stems)
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Pomegranate Juice (*Orange Juice will work as well)
1 teaspoon Cornstarch
Let the ingredients come to boil on medium low heat. Once boiling, stir and turn down to low heat for 8-10 mins. Strain sauce into a heat safe bowl while gently pressing remaining compote with the back of a spoon (whole cherries should be separated or separating from the seeds at this point). When all juice is extracted, discard compote from the strainer. Using a basting brush, brush the wings with the sauce and continue grilling. (This should be done toward the end to avoid any food burning)
Allow glaze to cook on wings for at least 8-10 mins.
Lastly, brush on your BBQ sauce of choice and serve. (We used Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey BBQ Sauce)
