Recipe by LoriInIndiana

From a Jewish Cooking website, this recipe sounds quite intriguing to me as I love cherries and have never seen them used in this way before.

Delicious, easy to make, and elegant. I'm sure I will make this again, and I will try it without the vinegar. I just have a feeling I would like it even better that way. I used half-and-half instead of cream and I used frozen tart cherries. Wow! This is good! Reviewed for ZWT4.
