This recipe may be microwaved instead of cooked on the stove. If you wish to microwave it mix liquid, sugar and corn starch, microwave on "High" 2 or 3 minutes or until mixture thickens and boils. Stir once during cooking.

Made this today to avoid wasting some not-so-tasty cherries. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out! I will be using the filling for a Black Forest pie.
