Its a tedious job of quartering and pitting cherries,but well worth the stained fingers. Spooned lavishly over ice cream,layered in a parfait, or used to flavor a soda.A touch of almond enhances the sauce. Spoon over a white cake.You will find many uses,I am sure..Enjoy!!!

I cheated! I used frozen, pitted sweet cherries ... and it turned out great. This is a wonderful sauce to spoon over plain nonfat yogurt (or any other kind of yogurt, or anything else, come to think of it). Simple as can be -- just cherries with a hint of lemon. Thanks for posting this!
