Chef John never disappoints! This sauce is fantastic, and you can customize the amount of heat to your liking by adjusting the amount of cayenne. Keep in mind that this recipe is only for 2 servings, so plan on tripling it for a family of 4-6. We ate ours with grilled chicken, and loved it, even my 10 year old daughter. Bravo!

I used this recipe for some meatballs for a party, so I needed considerably more... I kept the ratios the same, and tweaked the recipe as follows: 1.5 cups chicken broth half cup peach preserves half cup cherry preserves I squeezed a whole lemon into a half cup measure and filled the remainder of the cup measure with red wine vinegar. a heaping teaspoon of chinese hot chili sauce. Simmered for awhile, probably at least 20 minutes. It turned out great.
