    LilPinkieJ's Note:

    I really like risotto. The trouble is that I am the only one in the house that likes it, until now. Everything is better when it is sweet. also, you cannot live near Door County without having a few cherry recipes on here. I used Cherries Poached in Vanilla - Cerises Pochées #229437 by the lovely and talented Chef #58104 for the cherries called for in this recipe. Yes, I still add the vanilla because my DH loves vanilla. You can skip this step if you use Rita's cherry, since it already is flavored.

    1. 1
      Place the milk, cream and vanilla into a saucepan and bring gently to boiling point. Meanwhile, begin melting the butter in a large saucepan and then add the rice. Stir well to ensure the rice is well coated in the butter. Cook this for a few minutes - you want the rice to get glossy and a bit translucent.
    2. 2
      Add a half cup of the boiling milk mixture. This should absorb fairly quickly and as soon as it has, add another half cup. Keep stirring and when this has absorbed add another half cup of milk mixture and 1 tablespoon of the reserved poached cherry liquid. This is the sweetener and it will also color the risotto.
    3. 3
      You need to continue this process of stirring and adding the just boiling milk and poaching liquid - you'll notice that the time between additions will get longer as the rice cooks.
    4. 4
      When you've got about 1 cup of milk mixture left - add a half cup of drained poached cherries to the risotto and continue as before. The risotto is finished when the rice has softened and become creamy - it should by now have a lovely delicate rose blush to it. How pretty is that?.
    5. 5
      Serve hot with a spoonful of reserved poached cherry juice and some extra poached cherries on top.
