Raspberry Balsamic Chicken

Ever had so much of something that you don’t know what to do with it all?  We seem to have an abundance of raspberries.  I often find myself trying to incorporate raspberries into recipe that I normally wouldn’t.  This recipe started as a variation on a barbecue sauce.  I thought that the acidity of the raspberries would blend well with the balsamic vinegar.  I quickly discovered that it needed some sweetness, and the honey did the job well.  I have used this sauce on chicken, but I assume it would work equally well on pork.  You can definitely taste the raspberries in the finished product, which is really what I was going for.  Give it a try and let us know what you think!
