Trumpeter Charlie Miller makes a fruit sauce as sweet as his music. The recipe is part of WWOZ’s cookbook “That Sounds Good!”
“I’ve had it for a long, long time. I can’t remember but I think I thought it up myself, I hope,” says Miller. “The reason it’s so good is that there is nothing cooked here, it’s all very natural.” Watch as Charlie Miller teaches reporter Erin Nicole how to make “Jazzy Fruit Sauce,” then try it out yourself with the recipe and directions below!
Jazzy Fruit Sauce
- 2 grapefruit
- Dates/and or raisins
- 2 ounces Cognac
Zest 1 tsp. of grapefruit and set aside. Juice the grapefruit. Spin the dates/raisins, zest and a little juice in a food processor until the mixture is a paste. Add remaining juice and splash of cognac. Chill the mixture. Use it as fruit dip or pour over fruit salad. Enjoy!
