Blueberry Aigre-Doux with Pork Chops

Sweet and Sour Blueberries with Pork Chops

Aigre-Doux means sweet and sour, which is exactly what this is. Or maybe more. Dunno. Do know it's versatile and easy to love. It's a staple in this house. 

Try it my peaches, and enjoy. XOXO

Serves 4 – 6

½ onion, minced
1 cup balsamic vinegar
¼ cup water
1 cup white sugar
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon finely minced rosemary
Black pepper to taste

In a small saucepan combine all the ingredients. Let simmer gently until the blueberries are soft and the liquid has reduced slightly (it should thicken up a bit.) Remove from the heat, taste and add more sugar or vinegar as needed. Add black pepper to taste. 

Serve with grilled or pan-seared pork chops, or on a cheese platter. It pairs especially well with cheddar cheese. You might also use it in a grilled cheese sandwich. Don't be shy!

Will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. 


This recipe was created as part of my tribute to blueberries, and as an entry in the "Blueberries Meet Their Match" contest, sponsored by the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council. Check them out, here. I wonder if they would like my slogan ... "Blueberries, the little blue dynamos that rock your mouth, and help your health."
