|3 cups||Ontario Cherries, chilled and pitted|
|1 cup||granulated sugar|
Drain cherries well; set aside. Reserve 1 cup (250 mL) juice. In saucepan, blend cornstarch into juice; add sugar. Cook stirring over medium-high heat until thickened and translucent. Reduce heat to medium-low*; cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add reserved cherries and cook gently for 1 to 2 minutes more to heat through.
Store leftover sauce in covered jar in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days. Makes about 3-1/2 cups (875 mL) Variation: Once reducing heat to medium-low, add either: 1 tbsp (15 mL) orange or cherry liquer; 1 tsp (5 mL) orange rind; 1 tsp (5 mL) almond extract Note: If you're watching your waistline, go light on this sauce.
Cherries are such a treat. Most months of the year, you can find imported cherries among your grocer's produce offerings, but they are often exhorbitantly priced and their freshness and taste just don't match locally grown.
Cherries are in season locally for such a seemingly short period, that cherry lovers anticipate this time of year with great excitement. Such cherry addicts can be found about this time of year with red fingers and discarded pits and stems strewn about them, a satisfied look on their faces.
