I didn't use this as dessert, but as a side dish for grilled pork tenderloin (seasoned with 5 spice). I halved it for hubby and I. Flavors were great. No way I needed to simmer the sauce for as long as the recipe said. With a half recipe, the sherry took only a few minutes and then the balsamic another few. I made the sauce ahead and just warmed it prior to service. Would make again during plum season for sure.
Made to directions, using a raison-y sweet sherry & subbing sour cream for the crème fraîche. Very good.Read More
