Meanwhile, prepare topping: Combine granola, flour, butter, brown sugar and salt in a large bowl; set aside.
After 1 hour of cooking, stir lemon juice into the cherry mixture. Evenly distribute the granola mixture on top. Cover and cook for 1 hour. Adjust the lid to partially cover; cook for 30 minutes more. Serve warm.
