Apple and cranberry are two fruits that don't pile on the sweet, but definitely bring unique flavors: the clean, fresh slight sweetness of apple and the tart of cranberry. Combine those two with the rich depth of demi and you've got the perfect sauce for pork. It's both subtle and strong, layered flavors with a dusting of chives. Sweet is nice, but this is sublime.
