probably gonna stick with the recipe ...first time out anyhow.
No spritz, no glaze prior to cooking but serving as suggested in the recipe.
Sorry guys, doing this maiden voyage in the oven
Next time I'll do the raisins, braise then smoke with some apple/cherry wood.
I think the cherries are supposed to acquire some of the rum flavor
"While apple juice is reducing, melt butter in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and sauté; when the onions start to brown around the edges, turn the heat down to medium-low and caramelize, stirring frequently. When the onions are the color of milk chocolate, add the apples and the dried cherries and take off the heat; then add the Rum. Place back on the heat and cook until almost all of the Rum has boiled away"
