Here is a sweet and savory cherry sauce that is excellent with pork, game,
and duck when hot. Or serve it hot or cold with cold sliced meats. You can
prepare this sauceone day in advance. Stor in the refrigerator and rewarm
over low heat before serving.

In a large, heavy saucepan, combine 3/4ths of the cherries, the sugar,
lemon juice and white wine. Simmer over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes.
Allow the mixture to cool slightly, then transfer it to a food processor or
blender and puree. Return the puree to the saucepan, add the remaining
cherries, and cook over low heat for 2 minutes. Season with nutmeg and
cayenne pepper to taste.

Yield: About 1 1/2 cups of sauce.
