Quick Cherry Sauce
From EatingWell: February/March 2006
Frozen pitted cherries make this luscious sauce a snap to make. Try substituting frozen raspberries if you prefer.
- 2 10-ounce bags frozen pitted cherries, preferably sour cherries
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup plus 1/4 cup water, divided
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/4 cup lemon juice, juice
- Bring cherries, sugar and 2/3 cup water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring often. Stir 1/4 cup water and cornstarch in a small bowl until smooth and stir into the boiling cherry mixture. Return to a boil, stirring constantly; cook until thickened, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.
