Fresh Cherry Sauce. This recipe is ready in just a few minutes and tastes out of this world!
I’ve haven’t been able to get enough cherries lately since we left Georgia on our RV trip. I still can find peaches in nearby stores, but the cherries have just been calling my name. Of course, it could have something to do with all of the delicious desserts we’ve had in Williamsburg and then again in DC.
And since we’re in the RV, I knew just what I wanted to make to go along with the cream cheese pound cake I baked the other afternoon. This fresh cherry sauce. Oh my gosh, just the thought of it had my mouth watering.
This sauce is amazing with everything from yogurt in the morning, pork chops or ham for supper, and (YES!) dessert! It is delicious over ice cream and absolutely perfect with pound cake. I think it would just be great right by itself, to be honest.
If you enjoy canning, it sure would make a nice present for the holidays, too.
Okay, enough about how wonderful it is. You just need to make it for yourself and see what I mean. You’ll be singing the praises of cherry farmers all over the land. I promise.
Here’s my Fresh Cherry Sauce Recipe.
