hi! i'm new to the recipe board and was wondering if someone has a good general fruit reduction recipe.
specifically, i'm looking to settle the age old debate of whether to use alcohol and sugar or not.
i juiced a pomegranate, i have both dried and fresh cherries and bottled yuzu juice.
i was thinking i would cook down the cherries in the pomegranate juice and leave out the yuzu, but didn't know what kind of liquor i should use if any and what the ratio of liquid to sugar there should be.
thanks in advance!
Play it by ear with with the whole sugar to liquid ratio...some people like things less sweet than others...have a tasting spoon by your side...don't burn your tounge!!!
A really simple recipe I like is juicing a carrot (maybe even buy good quality carrot juice) and reducing it with a little sugar or curry orange juice and then incorporating butter (maybe even a slurry) into it.
