      I made these for our dessert tonight and we really enjoyed them. I served them with a dollop of whipped cream, but would like to try them with some pound cake. Made for ZWT 8, Bistro Babes.

      Very nice, although the water can be reduced easily by half to make a thicker (and more flavourful) poaching liquid/syrup (the cherries also released their own liquid). I removed the cherries after the stated cooking period and reduced the liquid for another 6-7 minutes to make it more syrupy. Lovely served on vanilla ice cream.
