If you love cherries, you will love this sauce! It’s perfect.
Following the same method that I use for my raspberry sauce, I cooked frozen sweet dark cherries with cherry preserve, a little sugar, water and cornstarch. The results were a rich and delicious sauce. I used the sauce to make an Easy Black Forest Cake for my Oktoberfest party.
