I had some blackberry puree that I wanted to use for something other than dessert so I started surfing for a blackberry reduction sauce to go over pork. This is a sampling of three different recipes and the end result was terrific.

Drizzle this blackberry balsamic reduction sauce over your grilled meat to take it to another level. A breeze to prepare, we thought it was delightful over grilled pork. It's sweet and tart with notes of blackberry flavor throughout.
