Sour Cherry Citrus Muffins

From a Canadian Living Muffins and Cookies book. The original recipe was for blueberries and suggested sweet cherries as a possible substitution. I found it much more interesting with sour cherries - and there's plenty of brown sugar in here to compensate for the tartness of the cherries.

    I made these with dried cherries which I soaked in water and the orange juice (from the zested orange I used). The dried cherries makes these pretty calorie dense but very satisfying. I also used 1/2 t of cinnamon because there is no such thing as too much cinnamon.
