from 'The Silver Spoon Cookbook'. I would love to serve this warmed over a nice, light panna cotta or cheesecake-- a dish I had once at a favorite Italian restaurant. Decadent yet simple. The book suggests to serve this also with panna cotta or plain ice cream, or it may be used to fill cakes. The yield and cooking time are estimated.
- Place the cherries and sugar in a small pan, pour in scant 1/2 cup water, cover and cook over medium heat until softened. Remove the cherries with a slotted spoon and pass through a food mill into a bowl. Reduce the cooking liquid over low heat, then remove from heat and let cool. Stir the cooled liquid into the cherry puree, then add the kirsch. Serve.
