  • 3/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 3-4 tbsp. Clabber Girl Cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup water

Instructions

Drain the cherries and set aside. Place cherry juice (from can or jar) in a 3 quart saucepot. Add in sugar and heat until gently boiling. Add in water and cornstarch and heat on medium until mixture boils gently and thickens, about 3-5 minutes. Cool well and stir in cherries.

Chill well. Makes about 2 cups.

Alternatives

If you have fresh sour cherries, you could use them (pitted of course) and substitute cherry juice or water for the liquid. Otherwise this uses imported sour cherries that come in a jar.
