Cherry Sauce

This recipe is so simple, yet so yummy!  This is really just the Our Best Bites strawberry sauce made with fresh cherries instead.  I've used that sauce recipe with strawberries, peaches and cherries and it's no-fail, it works with anything!  I used the peach sauce for dipping cream puffs at a party, the strawberry sauce is awesome in lemonade too! 

If you happen upon a bunch of fresh cherries try this out! We re-heated some leftover chocolate fondue (recipe coming!) and drizzled it on vanilla ice cream with the cherry sauce...it's pretty amazing.  Hot fudge would be great with the cherry sauce as well.  If you need some tips on how to pit cherries without an expensive space-hoarding cherry pitter, try this link.  I used the pastry tip method which was really easy but I would highly recommend wearing an apron!

Cherry Sauce
recipe adapted from Our Best Bites

2 c. roughly chopped cherries (or other fruit)
1/3 c. sugar (less if your fruit is very sweet)
1 tsp. vanilla

Put everything together in a skillet and cook over medium, stirring constantly, for about five minutes.  The juices should be running out of the fruit and making the sauce more saucy...very descriptive.  Remove from heat and let cool a while.  Pour the sauce in your blender and blend until smooth.  Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.  Enjoy as you see fit!
