Description

A copycat version of what you get in a can, only fresher. Different kinds of cherries can be used (we have a sour cherry tree) and sugar can be increased or decreased to taste. Excellent on a fresh cheesecake.

Ingredients
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 cups pitted fresh sour cherries
  • ½ cup white sugar
Directions
  1. 1. Combine water and cornstarch in a small bowl; mix slurry until very few lumps remain.
  2. 2. Pour slurry into a saucepan. Stir in cherries and sugar. Cook over medium heat, covered, until mixture is desired thickness, 15 to 20 minutes.
