|roasted chicken, red potatoes with dill, blackberry sauce and green beans|
Georgian blackberry sauce is a great alternative to... ketchup. Goes really well with roast chicken.
1 1/2 cup ripe blackberries
1 small garlic clove, peeled and chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 small hot red or green pepper, minced
1/4 cup minced mixed fresh dill and cilantro
1 or 2 tsp lemon juice
Directions (from Darra Goldstein's The Georgian Feast):
Force the blackberries through a fine sieve or food mill into a bowl. With a mortar and pestle (I use my small food processor), pound the garlic, salt, and hot pepper into a paste and add to the sieved blackberries. Stir in the minced herbs and lemon juice. Serve at room temperature.
